Lately every time I try to torrent a file using uTorrent, after 5 - 10 minutes, the download speed goes from 1.5 MB/s to 9 kb/s. Now the problem isn't the dramatic drop of download speed. It breaks my Mac Mini. Everything starts lagging and slowing down, such as opening Finder which takes a minute to open (instead of seconds) and browsing the web which takes 30 seconds to load google.com. The only way to solve this is by stopping the torrent and deleting it, then rebooting the Mac Mini. This Mac Mini is only 1 month old so I'm pretty sure it's not the hardware. Is anyone savvy enough to explain what is going on? How the hell is uTorrent capable of completely breaking Mac Mini???
