Windows 7: Computer freezes completely when using uTorent, IDM etc.

Win 7 ultimate 64 bit
Bit torrents freezing computer on win 7

I've had this problem for a while on both my desktop and laptop. Have done tons of searches, tried most of the fixes but nothing worked. Investigating a bit further, I found that all my machines that displayed this behavior were using Atheros wireless and on board lan connections. I downloaded and installed latest drivers, no luck. So, thinking it maybe a problem with these connections, I installed a spare netgear wireless n usb adapter and disabled the Atheros wireless adapter on my laptop. Success! . It has been running my client [deluge], without a freeze for the past 4 hours. Not sure if this will help anyone else but it worked for me and I thought I'd share it. Thanks and have a darn fine day. :)

Windows 7 Completely Freezes
I have a 2-day old Dell Studio 1555 that randomly freezes 10-30 min after startup. It doesn't matter if the computer is idle or if it's being used... it just freezes. Dell has been completely useless in helping me figure it out. I've run all of the diagnostics and they're all coming out clean. ...
