seven lock-up when donwloading torrents

hi guys, i am having a problem here...

every time i try to download a torrent, windows get VERY slow, until it stops completely and i need to hard reset the PC, strangely enough, this only happens with torrents, other download go fine... still didn't tried other P2P programs like emule or such

the log of azureus stop right after a cyclic redundancy check, and all the others torrent program (like uTorrent or Bitspirit) stoped right after the CRC check...

i thought about being the Hdd, but everyother type of download and instalation of programs goes fine...

can you guys help me out?

thanks in advance

Look to see if there's an update to the network driver. Install if so.

From an elevated command prompt, type

chdsk /r X:

Change X to the drive or partition letter that you are saving torrents to.

Allow the necessary tcp and udp ports in your router to be forwarded to your machine, matching what the torrent client is using.

This is common with Win 7 and torrents. It is highly suggested that you set up a virtual machine and use something like Vista or XP on torrent sites. This also will help keep virus and other nasties from getting into you main OS, and ensure you have an anti virus program loaded and running. Not sure why this happens, and it doesn't always it just with some systems.

thanks guys, i already have a anti-virus and have the ports opened, but if this is a Windows 7 problem, i think i will just use the other PC i have here with XP and wait for a fix for 7


thanks again, i was really worried about this, i just got my pc one week ago and thought that perhaps it came with a problematic Hdd X_X

i will see if i can find newer network drivers too...

and the windows didn't recgonized the command chdsk /r

Sorry about that. It's chkdsk instead.

Windows 7 doesn't have any problems with torrenting. It's most likely a driver issue for you. So ya, update that.

it's strange, sundelly, when chkdsk get to a cluster it stops and use all the memory on the PC, and stays like that... he didn't crashed, nor had locked-up the PC.

is this normal? it stopped 3 times on the same cluster...

Utorrent crashing or seeming to cause crashes has to do with the NIC driver being used. This has been an ongoing problem with bad NIC drivers and Windows 7. The NIC gets loaded to near capacity with Utorrent and shuts down the internet or crashes the system.

About all you can do is keep looking around for updated NIC drivers for your system.

well... yea, i will just keep using the XP PC to download torrents and p2p in general until MS release a fix or a SP for 7

i tried to download the NIC driver but i don't know what driver to download

i know the network adpter is a Nvidia nForce (it's what is showing up on the system info at least) but i could't find anything that gave me a lead to what driver i need to download... and as Nvidia site don't have any info about how to discover what series it is... it get's kinda of dificult to have any progress...
