windows seven beta 7000

Any way I applied it but in vain.

Still the problem is unsolved.

Is there a solution?

It's not uncommon for Torrent downloads to be slow though.

It really depends on how many seeders there are for the download and how fast they are uploading.

Windows 7 Build 7048 x64

Hi medhunter,

Using uTorrent in Windows 7 gave me no problems at all. My utorrent is almost always running
There are 2 approaches that I personally use on my system which can be combined or used independently;
1. Use Advanced System Care from IObit. It's system optimization tweaks your registry depending on your preferences which can be downloaded here. No manual registry tweaks needed
2. For P2P connections, i use the Half-Limit fix and set it to 100 as it's limit. Information on what this patch does and download info is available here.

Note: Before using the Half-Limit fix, be sure that it's not a seeding or firewall issue, uTorrent Home/Forum contains all the help available to resolve and answer these issues.

I'd recommend doing the patch if your utorrent/torrent download speeds are not being fully utilized (i.e. 1Mbps connection but only downlaoding at half the speed). Increasing the half-limit imposed by windows usually solves this issue.

Let us know how it works out. Cheers!

See if your ISP is throttling your torrent use...

Windows 7 64bit/Windows Vista Ultimate 64bit

Ive already reported there are some sort of connection differences between Vista and Windows 7. I have both installed and tested Utorrent and the same torrents on them. Windows 7 easily gets overloaded for some reason and slows down.

You could always try a different torrent downloader, I prefer Bitcomet myself.

Vista Ult 64bit - Windows 7 Ult 7264 64bit

Hey guys

Ummm...I hate to be the stick in the mud, but the limit on Half Open Connections has absolutely NO EFFECT on your torrent d'load speeds!
As the name states, it only limits Half open connections and not Established ones, so only the number of connections sitting and waiting for the Ack/Syn handshake to complete is affected, and if they reach their timeout they're probably not going to connect anyway. But that matters not because as sson as they are dropped, the max is immediately reached again and as handshakes complete they move OUT of that limit. You can have any number of Completed connections so the only thing the limit slows down is how fast you build your swarm and not how many you can have or their d'load speeds.

These TCP/IP patches are all smoke and mirrors, and the 64bit ones made the OS unbootable. Just use the Good Speed Settings for your particular P2P app and don't worry about any Half open limit. The most you lose is AT MOST 1 or 2 minutes in building your connections and then there is absolutely no effect on your downloads.

This myth has been disproven many times, and by many people much smarter than Mark Russinovitch (probably the smartest Windows guy on the PLANET)

Yeah, all it does is screw things up. I should know, when I used it before I started having connection problems after a while. Better just to try Brinks tutorials, and see if that gives you anything.
