I'm having a strange problem with Windows Vista Home Premium edition. When I use P2P programs like Emule and uTorrent (and others), they don't shut down completely. I exit the program without any problems, but when I open the task manager, the process for that program is still running, though its processor usage is 0. Because of this my memory gets used up unnecessarily, and I can't run that particular program again without restarting. I have the latest Vista-compatible versions of both these programs...anyone know what's wrong?

These kind of program have to close all the open connections and finsh writing stuff to disk and so on. Have you waited a few minutes to make sure it just isn't slow?

Yes, they remain in memory even a few hours later...is there some setting that has to be changed in Vista's connection/network settings?

Are you sure that:
1) The programs are Vista compatible? and
2) That there is not a TSR (terminate and stay resident) component that allows the file sharing to go on?

I'm sure about the former, but could you explain the latter - maybe that's the problem?

While I'm not real familiar with P2P or torrents - I recall that, in order to download, you've got to permit others to download from you. That'd require that something be left TSR so that others could download the torrent from your system.
