I've had this computer for about 6 months now and I've noticed that if I try to download something from Limewire or Bitlord it randomly freezes up in the middle of downloading. It could take an hour after I started the download or 5 minutes. To me it seems completely random. But it only does it with this type of downloading. I can download things from my browser just fine. Anyone have an suggestions as on how to fix this? Does it have to do with too much memory being used or something?

If you need any other information about my problem, let me know. :thumbsup:

First of all, I hope you realize that anything to do with limewire or bitlord, Has the potential for viruses and/or spyware, I ask this first question, is your computer clean? If not, Id suggest you get it clean through various programs such as spybot, spywareblaster , and AV or a free trial of norton

Personally, I think its either a glitch in the program or something to do with the internet that you have, Have you gone into your processes menu when this happens to see exactly how much memory it is taking up, when it freezes? That might help explain your question of if its a memory issue or not,

Have you tried reinstalling the programs? to make sure it wasn't them themselves? If not I would recommend it.
