BSOD while dowloading anything via uTorrent.

I get the blue screen multiple times while downloading something, I'm downloading something right now, might even BSOD while writing this thread. Only happens during downloading, and only happens on uTorrent. Help will be appreciated.

The information that was required is as follows;

The BSOD dump and perfmon .zip file is attached, titled 'Information.rar'

Is Windows 7 . . .
- x86 (32-bit) or x64 ? x86 (32-bit)
- the original installed OS on the system? Yes
- an OEM or full retail version? OEM
- OEM = came pre-installed on system
- Full Retail = you purchased it from retailer

- What is the age of system (hardware)? About 1/2 to 2 months
- What is the age of OS installation (have you re-installed the OS?) I haven't reinstalled.

Sorry I tend to post without first browsing similar topics. Supposedly, if you have McAfee, which I do, but don't use, (I use AVG), McAfee blocks some things for uTorrent that happen to be a Windows Service, which in turn, causes the BSOD.

This is the topic that I found -->

I've removed McAfee and hope this never happens again, if it does, I'll report back here.

Thanks again.

(I was wondering why I wasn't getting replies.) :)

EDIT: Oh, and I won't mark this solved until I'm 100% sure it's fixed.

So far, I haven't had any problems after uninstalling McAfee. Marking this as solved.
