7.6.1 constantly crashes

Recommended Posts

Guest MuffinMan7580

I was prompted to update my old version of BitTorrent, so I did, now it constantly crashes. Why? What was wrong with it in the first place (It looked like it was in a window, everyone wants something to look pretty nowadays).

It's constantly crashing... Getting annoying.

What internet security software do you all have installed?

F-Secure

Have you tried with f-secure temporarily uninstalled?

Have you tried deleting settings.dat and settings.dat.old from %appdata%\bittorrent ?

start - run - %appdata%\bittorrent

delete settings.dat and settings.dat.old with bittorrent closed.

Worked for like 90 seconds after clearing those. Crashed as soon as I had finished setting my preferences back to the way I liked them.

Indeed. Since updating to version 7.6.1, on Win 7 x64, BitTorrent crashes frequently.

@Tth (if this person is ever going to come back): DId you do what Harold suggested (disabling [temp uninstalling] F-Secure and doing the thing with the Settings.dat and the Settings.dat.old files?

To everyone else: What is your antivirus or autobackup software? (If your AV/Auto Backup software is causing issues try disabling it and see if it solves the issue.)

Also: If you want to not update just uncheck the 'check for updates' box in the settings menu (under general settings).

I removed those files suggested (settings.dat and settings.dat.old), and that seems to be working. I'm gonna try and reactivate my McAfee antivirussoftware...

I'm using KIS, and I've tried to pause protection, but its still unstable or else crashes. Maybe it can be helped by changing preferences?

Where can I download an older version? I'd rather just install an older version than wait for someone to try to come up with a fix for this. If I can't get an older version, I'll just uninstall and start using Utorrent! This is really annoying!

We don't provide support for downgrading. Sorry.

Obviouly you don't provide support for a buggy update either!

As soon as I updated, it started freezing up and crashing.

Win7 64 bit. MSE

I disabled all antivirus

Did you try uninstalling.

Also, did you try deleting settings.dat and settings.dat.old from %appdata%\bittorrent ?
