    Hi, have a little internet problem here, if i'm on internet ( using internet explorer/opera) it works good, but if i have something downloading in utorrent at the same time, it eventually stops working, I can't open a new site in explorer and all downloads stop.
    But if i go to Local Area Connection and click status, it shows that it's still receiving packets.

    Anybody know what the problem can be? I've had utorrent for a long time and i've never had this problem before.

    (I have 10Mbit, and it's not wireless)

    Thanks

    One thing about utorrent it is one of the P2P networks and thus makes it an illegal program to work on here at TSG since almost everything that is downloaded thru these type networks is infected with some sort of virus, trojan or other type. This is stated in the TSG rules

    I would suggest un-installing the utorrent and then posting a HijackThis log file and we might be able to help in that way. But the utorrent has to be gone and if not it will show up in the log file and there might not be any help.

    To download HJTsetup.exe from TrendSecure To Download HijackThis go to the following at the File Repository
    Click on the link below to Download HijackThis Self Installer:

    http://www.trendsecure.com/portal/en-US/threat_analytics/HJTInstall.exe

    Save the file to your desktop.
    Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
    By default it will install to C:\Program Files\HijackThis.
    Continue to click Next in the setup dialog boxes until you get to the Select Additional Tasks dialog.
    Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
    Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
    At the final dialog box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
    Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
    Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
    At the top of the Notepad HJT log screen, hit Edit then Select All then click Edit and then click Copy doing that copies the text to the clipboard, you won't see it yet....
    Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
    DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.
    A security expert with a gold shield to the right of their name should take a look at your log - please be patient.
