I started getting random BSODs about two weeks ago, and I've concluded that the problem lies with uTorrent, as the crashes only happen when it's running. I've been seeding a large number of torrents lately, which I'm guessing is the cause of the crashes. I haven't installed any new programs recently.
I can't recall the exact error message, but I'll try to provide as much other info as I can. (I think it was some kind of stop error?)
I'm running Windows XP SP3 and uTorrent 1.8.5 (build 17414). Other programs running are ZoneAlarm and Norton AV. The computer is a Dell Inspiron 1520 laptop.
This is the system error listed in Event Viewer:
"Error code 000000c2, parameter1 00000007, parameter2 00000cd4, parameter3 02060001, parameter4 887288d0."
Here are the events that always occur in the 30 seconds or so before the crash:
"The iPod Service service entered the running state."
"The iPod Service service was successfully sent a start control."
"The Background Intelligent Transfer Service service entered the running state."
"The Background Intelligent Transfer Service service was successfully sent a start control."
"The system detected that network adapter Dell...WLAN Mini-Card - Packet Scheduler Miniport was connected to the network, and has initiated normal operation over the network adapter."
"The IMAPI CD-Burning COM Service service entered the stopped state."
"The SSDP Discovery Service service entered the running state."
I really have no idea what the iPod service is all about, because I never have an iPod plugged into the PC during any of the crashes.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
