    hi I'm downloading some episodes of bleach via azuerus and my computer keeps freezing? it keeps coming up with the message to hold the power button and restart, and it never did this before I started downloading this torrent. By the way for all you moral police, I am just downloading because my DVD is messed up and won't upload :(

    Try using Transmission if you have no specific reason for Azureus...

    ok thanx, looked at transmission but no good cuz I only need to download 8 episodes and can only find a torrent with 50 so I need an app that lets me choose files in the torrent

    actually now that i dont have ichat open it seems to be fine

    Transmission does let you do this...click the blue circle with an i in it, then Files :)

    Check if your system is overheating. Also, look at the kernel logs to see why it crashed.

    Have you tried verifying the disk and disk permissions?

    Sometimes this helps for me!

    And Azures is not very good until Power PC (or maybe its just my powerbook) you will also find much greater speeds off transmission! Ive heard its a far superior torrent client!
