I am using uTorrent for a couple of months and know the basics but recently my regular Internet has been slowed down considerably (I would say 80%) when I d/l a file.
I am using DSL with two computers online.
I did some "process of elemination testing" and found when I paused all my downloads (3), the problem corrected immediately. When I started one d/l again, there was a slowdown.
I put the Bansdwith Allocation to Low (from High) on them all but it's still slow.
I know next to nada about anything else. I have an icon at the tray which indicates it's a "Configuration" utility but as said, I have no idea what this is and even if I did, I might not understand the language involved (see, I am a real Newbee).
Worst case scenario of course is to pause the d/l when I'm using the Internet and the during the night. So it will take longer but it's nothing critical.
Any input which is idiot friendly will be appreciated.
