BSOD after hours of downloading

  1. First I was using Zone Alarm and the crashed file was a driver of it.
    I switched to Comodo and now cmdmon.sys is crashing.
    They are crashing though after hours of torrent downloading.
    So I guess it's not either firewall's fault but rather some problem with my XP again.
    BTW, the BSOD reports tcpip.sys as the problem and I have to say, I did change tcpip.sys to have more half open connections to optimise download speeds using torrents.

    Any thoughts on this?

    You've also got Netlimiter in the mix. I would uninstall it and see if the crashes stop. Your Zonealarm log wasn't complete, so unable to see if Netlimiter was involved there.

    I've also patched tcpip.sys, and I'm using Comodo. I'm not having any problems with either when downloading.

    never really thought of disabling Netlimiter as I think it's really useful.
    I'll try disabling it but not unistalling it for a few days to see what will happen
