    What's happening with Torrent clients?
    Firts off, I'd like to say hello to all the users on the forum. I'm registered with quite a few for various things but post very little. I do, of course, really appreciate any help i recieve.

    After down loading the 2 most recent versions of my preferred client, Transmission, I've experienced complete system freeze. After a few minutes Transmission and any other apps would freeze eventually requiring a restart.

    Giving up on Transmission(which i'd used for YEARS without any problems whatsoever) i downloaded Vuze(prev azereus) which worked fine for the first 24 hours. Since then i've had the same problem; complete freeze after abut 2 minutes requiring a restart. I've restricted the amount of simultaneus DLs to 4, and avoided using any other apps but to no avail. I simply don't understand why these clients have started messing up on me. Is it an OS problem or what? I've checked a few of the forums but can't get any clear answers.

    Thanks in advance

    Does it only happen with those BitTorrent clients? Freezing sounds to me like defect RAM (was it in my case a few years ago anyway...). Maybe get your RAM checked - there is some software for that - or replace it if possible to see if that fixes it.
