  1. After a couple minutes of torrenting, my computer keeps crashing.

    I'm not good with technology, but from browsing, I've gathered I should post a zip file of my minidump files.. (I have no idea what those even are)

    here there are..

    I hope I did this right.

    Can't read the dump. Can you zip it again?

    Did it again, and it ended up being too big
    so I only zipped the last 5.

    *still hoping it'll work*

    Looks like a network driver is causing this. What are your computer specs? Make and model?

    I'm not really sure what you're asking for, sorry ):

    I have a Lenovo thinkpad though T410i

    uhm...
    Windows 7 Enterprise
    Service Pack 1
    Intel core i3 CPU ,2.13GHz
    RAM: 4GB
    64 bit

    is that it?

    That's good... All the minidumps shows the same thing. What antivirus program are you using? Torrenting is a dangerous hobby. Virus and other malware infections are rampant with torrenting practices

    the antivirus is McAfee

    Do you have another minidump with that to post? Remember to ZIP it if necessary

    Microsoft Security Essentials showed no infections? The minidump is still the same:
    DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
    Netio.sys
    Ntoskrnl.exe


    Are there any yellow exclamation points in the device manager?

    no infections or yellow exclamation points.

    DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
    Netio.sys
    Ntoskrnl.exe

    what does that mean?

    It refers to a network driver issue. This is a driver that connects your computer to the Internet. Can you go to other non-torrent sites without any problems?

    it doesn't crash when i go to a site. It's when I'm torrenting (i used utorrent)
    It'll work just fine for a couple minutes and then I see a blue screen with white letters...
    it's done that on different files.

    Do you have any site blocking software similar to the software that keeps children from going places on the computer that could be harmful to them?

    I think it's good now! Sorry for all the trouble, turns out all the mcafee things didn't uninstall because I couldn't get rid of the Agent and it kept reinstalling everything else.
    But I got rid of the Agent and so far so good, thanks so much!
