Every time I open BitTorrent,in the space of few instants,my notebook crashes and appears a screenful like this http://img205.images...394eb0.jpg,with the initial text DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL.I underline the fact that not using BitTorrent,my pc works perfectly.I read in several sites it could be a problem of drivers or something,but I still haven't understood how solving it.The only thing I understood is the name of the problem I can read at the boot,which is,woe is me,BlueScreen.Hoping my pc is not passing to a better life,I thank you for your helping.

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.

I use Quick heal anti virus, I had same problem from last 1 year, The Blue screen would come and my system will crash whenever I run Bittorrent. I am using Window Vista Though
Now after looking this Blog i have turned off the Firewall and it is working perfect.

Thanks a lot guys
