Bittorrent Crashing

Recommended Posts

When I open the program, I get the message 'Windows ran out of memory. Unable to allocate (insert random number) of bytes. Ive tried to uninstall the program, but it wont let me I get the same message whenever I try that as well. I've tried downloading a newer version, but I get that as well. The only way to get it to stop barraging me with the error is to enter task manager and close it from there.

If not too late, you will need to follow the steps below:

1. In Bittorent at Options - Preferences - Advanced Disk cache you need to disable "Override automatic cache size and specify size manually (MB):"

2. In "Windows Control Panel\System and Security\System - Advanced system settings - Advanced - Settings - Advance - Change" you need to set custom paging file as follows:

- Initial size (MB): 2 X physical RAM memory

- Maximum size (MB): 3 X physical RAM memory

To commit page file changes you need to click on "Set" & "OK"

3. In Windows regedit you need to update next key from 0 to 1 (making sure the Hexadecimal option is checked): 

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\LargeSystemCache

4. Restart your computer

Following the steps above you will notice that memory consumption diminishes for Bittorrent and does not encounter problems related to disk overload.

Also i attached some useful screenshots.
