      Forum Upgrades   01/29/2016

      Hi Folks,   As you may have noticed if you're a regular visitor to our forums, things look a little different as our forums have just undergone a significant upgrade and now have a fresh new look!  We're aware that there are one or two little "niggles" with the upgrade that still need ironing out, but we're on the case, and normal service will be resumed shortly!   In the meantime, if you've got a problem with a BitTorrent product, but are unable to post about it in the forums, you can also find support via the following links: BitTorrent Client Help Center BitTorrent Sync Help Center BitTorrent Bundle Help Center BitTorrent Bleep Help Center   Thank you for your patience as we work to improve your forum experience! UPDATE: 1st Feb - We're currently investigating issues with notifications - earlier issues that may have been preventing some users from logging in have now been resolved. UPDATE: 2nd Feb - Looking for the BitTorrent Sync forums? They've moved to http://forum.getsync.com (you can use your existing BitTorrent forum credentials to login)

I'm having the same problem, within 3-5 mins of starting bitorrent my comp crashes with blue screen and same info as OP. Using Windows7 and McAfee. I was being repeatedly prompted to sync with the toolbar, so I uninstalled that and it didnt solve the prob:/

A recent McAfee update has been known to cause this sort of behavior with BitTorrent and uTorrent.

Unfortunately, until McAfee fixes it, the only way to solve the issue is to uninstall McAfee entirely and replace it with a different package.
