Bluescreenview can give us more information about the bluescreen and tell us where to start.

Hi Harold Feit,

These are my BSODs.

The days before I using BitTorrent v7.1 and got BSOD quite often, while downloading a 93GB torrent.
Today I'm using BitTorrent v7.2.1 and still got BSOD.

I notice that anytime I download a huge torrent I got BSOD. Those torrents are about 100GB torrents with some 6GB - 12GB files.

When I got BSOD, I thought because the disk storing the torrent is damaged, I moved the torrent to another hard drive, but I still got BSOD. I believe this is not caused by bad sectors on the hard drive.


Hope this help.

D, your BSOD is being caused by network drivers, not by hard drives.

What internet security software do you have installed?

Nothing, I'm just using Synmatec Antivirus client (2006, v10.1.5.500) and it's not internet security software.

I'm using IE8, windows XP (old school). I also do not enable any internet firewall or such things, they are useless anyway.

At the time BSOD happen, only BitTorrent is on, no other windows applications are running (Synmatec running at startup and I just leave it be).

I just read the forum thread about BSOD on Window 7. Sound like the global number of connection is the cause isn't it ? I don't know, currently my global number of connection is 200 and I think it's reasonable. Noway I would reduce it to 10, it's just a waste.

Please try to reproduce my defect by downloading some huge torrents (100GB). I'm sure you can reproduce it by that way.

I've seen 5mb torrents do it when either poorly written internet security software or poorly written network adapter drivers are installed.
It's not the size of the torrent that's causing your problem.

Hi Harold Feit,

Correct me if I'm wrong, you mean there shall be no BitTorrent fix for that, don't you ?

If it is true, at least give us some instructions to avoid the BSOD.

That's correct, because it's not something we can fix.

Reduced connection limits and updating network adapter drivers are the way to fix the issue.

I think you're wrong. May be network adapter driver is not perfect but this time I'm pretty sure the bittorrent has trouble when downloading the huge torrent.

Do you know why I know you're wrong?

Because when I got BSOD, I stop download that torrent and it's ok for a month. When I re-download the huge torrent, BSOD happens. I notice the BSOD just happen when downloading huge torrent and I experienced that for years. To stop BSOD, I just stop downloading the huge torrent (100GB).

I would like to add more info.

For years, all of my BSODs are caused when running Bittorent. I have no BSOD when I don't run Bittorrent.

Accidentally, All BSODs happen when I have a huge torrent (80 - 100GB+) in the download list.

When all BSOD happen, I re-run the Bittorrent and it's always (always) re-check the huge torrent.

I'm using Bittorrent for years and got about 40 BSODs.

If I were actually wrong, the driver causing your crash would not be part of the networking stack (specifically the IPv6 driver).

Regardless of what it is, bluescreens are actually beyond the realm of userspace applications for both root cause and fix.

Hi,

Your problem isn't bittorrent I think.
Your problem is the way Windows tried to seperate parts on your harddisk.
Because it is a hugh file, Windows relocated your files on the harddisk to make it ready for this hugh file.
To solve that, you have to figured out some points:
- Is the harddisk a usb-drive?
- Try using a harddiskscan and virusscan. If you have badsectors in the 'part' of 93GB, BSOD happens.

I probably can help you, if ure follows my steps, written down above.

Sorry for my bad English, I'm Dutch.

Good luck with it!
