Bit Torrent Clients Freeze Computer
Ok, so for the last couple weeks, I've been trying to solve the problem of my computer freezing when I'm downloading with torrents. Until a couple weeks ago, I have never had any issues with torrents, and I've done nothing to change my system in any way. No new softwar or hardware installed, and suddenly in the last 2 weeks my computer has been freezing after I start my bittorrent clinets.

Generally I get 30 minutes to 2 hours worth of downloading then my computer freezes and needs a hard reboot. This has happened with uTorrent, ABC, and Azuerus. Any suggestions to correct this would be helpful. If you need more information, let me know what.

do the regular test > memtest86+ and leave it running for 2 passes

Could be a failing hard disk due to bad sector. Check if your hard disk indicator lights show constant activity.
Do a surface scan using chkdsk /r if you can.

I'd guess disk problems are to blame, too. BT really exercises a hard drive since it reads and writes each file as a collection of disparate individual chunks. I'd also check to make sure you're not running low on disk space.

As seijiSensei said running low on disk space, I would say that will be the problem, also maybe you've cluttered up your computer so use defragment to get rid of some of it.
