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.

My PC freezes after a few seconds when I start bittorrent.

I tried it a few times also with firewall and virusscanner off but it still freezes.

I read in the forum on this site someone saying updating his Windows worked for him, i tried it but that didn't work for me as well.

An other 'solution' of someone in the forum was to install an older version of bittorrent.

I installed v6.2 and everything works again without freezing my PC.

I'm using XP service pack 3

Greetings, Chris

Downgrading is not a good idea. It opens you up to security holes in older versions.

The better solution is to try a different firewall and updating your networking drivers.

I have version 7.2.0. When I select the "check for update" option, it says that "there is no new version available". So, using 7.2.0 is not necessary to install 7.2.1?

I installed 7.2.1, start downloads and after about 5-7minutes my machine BSOD with an IO NET error. Tried the following:

- changed from n+ wireless to g wireless

- changed to hardwire, wireless turned off

- changed to 1 download stream to try and see if contention in traffic

I never had any issue like this with other versions. My other apps have no issue with the network at all.

Running Windows 7 Professional-64bit please post link to the earlier versions. As for security holes, I am sorry but BSOD my machine is not a great protection. I can live with the little risk please....

Running the last version 7.2.1. Stil no bugs there. Also, my download speed is higher than in uTorrent, or older BitTorrent builds. I notice one thing, in every second, the ram memory used by this software, is cleaning themselves in every second while downloading.

That's a very good progress. Good job BitTorrent team!

I installed 7.2.1, start downloads and after about 5-7minutes my machine BSOD with an IO NET error.

I wanted to follow-up on this, I downloaded 7.2 and this works much better on my particular system. I am hoping one of the developers will see this post and be able to diff the code between versions to see how this issue may have occured. I have to agree with the other poster, I was getting higher transfer rates with the 7.2.1 but it the BSOD made it unusable unfortunately.

Looking forward to see updates to this and new versions.

Thanks

I agree with others here. 7.2.0 was stable whereas 7.2.1 causes a core dump after a short period.

Running Windows 7 Professional-64bit with latest updates from MS installed.

Please provide a link to 7.2.0 so we can re-install.

It sounds like there's a problem with your network drivers. What wireless card do you have? Have you tried updating its drivers yet?

A BSOD can only be caused by a bug in the driver itself, due to the way Windows works.

Because of cross-file pieces and the way the "Pause" function works, you actually can't avoid this.
