Any technical wizards out there?

I'm trying to download via 'Burst'but my PC keeps crashing every few minutes.

It starts to download/upload but then crashes, I then restart the download but it keeps happening.

I'm up to approx. 93%

Is there anything I can do ?

I should have said it's the Argentina 81 torrent I'm downloading.

P.S. In reply to the previous post it's a virtually brand new PC! No one likes a smartarse.

I'm not a wizard but try a defrag of your harddrive and run your spyware software. If you have Microsoft Windows you can download their AntiSpyware beta.

If this doesn't work I don't know what else
you can try except maybe a google search for "System Crash while downloading Burst".
You might get lucky and find a forum that can help.

I'm guessing your using up too much memory.

A fellow employee who work in technical support advised me to purchase an external hard drive for use in downloading media and burning because it uses a lot of memory and causes system problems.
I haven't had any problems since I went to an external drive.

Thanks for everyone's advice, I've finally completed the download by restarting every time.

I think the problem was the download rate was sometimes too high , when it was relativity low it didn't crash for some reason !

Apparently it is a common problem with bitorrent which they don't know how to fix. CPU usage is directly coupled to download speed in most cases, particularly on Windows 98 and ME.
