Yeh! Please clarify on your particular setup. I have the latest JRE 5.0 SE installed, and I still find that Azureus uses a lot of memory and cpu. Constant freezes due to 100% cpu usage which the latest JRE 5.0 SE was supposed to resolve according to Azureus's website faqs. Any help would be appreciated.
Port hammering might also be a possibility that I'm looking into. I'm wondering if you can check something like this with your firewall.
Please be advised that I did a fresh install of Azureus 188.8.131.52 and JRE 5.0 SE. I deleted all folders and files associated with Azureus and JRE. I cleared out all registries associated with Azureus and JRE. I did all of these things and more before performing the fresh install of Azureus and JRE. I still get the problems that I mentioned.
