I got crazy for a day because my uTorrent client (version 3.4.5) that worked well in all my old life, on the new pc freezes seconds after I run it.
Interesting to notice that the 2 areas for the advertisements remain blank as if something is not working with the embedded internet explorer component that shows the advertisements.
By the way, I noticed also that running the PC in safe mode solved the issue,
So it seems there is something running usually that is conflicting with uTorrent.
I did a lot of testing but the good idea came in my mind just the day after:
to check the dll loaded into the uTorrent memory space.
Doing this I found there was all legittimate dlls but I noticed there was 3 NVidia dll injected into uTorrent:
so why not try to denied NVidia to inject those dll and see the result?
the path to the dlls:
C:\Program Files (x86)\NVIDIA Corporation\coprocmanager\
I renamed the 3 dll so thay they are not found anymore,
restarted uTorrent and taaadaa!! it works now!
ok I would investigate if there is some option in the NVidia control panel to disable this thing but honestly I don't have time to waste in this and I don't care about graphics on this pc, so for me is enough.
if anybody knows how to say nvidia to not inject those dll a comment is welcome :)
