Here Are A few Workarounds To Fix Unresponsive uTorrent In Windows 10


With more than 150 million monthly users, uTorrent is probably the most popular client torrent used in the whole world and also the globe’s most used freeware.

It makes downloading and distributing vast amounts of files much easier.

Another reason for which this software is so loved is that it doesn’t slow down your system during the download process, unlike other software.

As popular as uTorrent is, it seems that there have been a number of complaints about uTorrent not responding in Windows 10. Here are the most frequent issues and workarounds for each of them.

uTorrent uses too much of CPU or freezes

if something like this happens, the potential causes include the system’s firewall, Avast anti-virus, Outpost Pro and Spyware Doctor 5.

Here are the workarounds for each of the cases:

  • If the firewall is to blame, disable it and reboot the system and note that there’s also some firewall software that has to go as well to fix the problem.
  • If Outpost Pro is the cause, you have to exclude uTorrent from its rules.
  • If Avast is to blame, you have to disable the P2P shield feature.
  • If Spyware Doctor 5 caused the problem, you have to uninstall it or roll back to a previous version.

uTorrent crashes frequently

The causes for which this could happen include V-Com System Suite, Cybersitter, NVIDIA Firewall and Normal Personal Firewall. You can solve the issue by uninstalling the relevant software mentioned above.

uTorrent gets stuck
