Default Re: 5.3GB of memory in use, and all I have open is uTorrent

I really doubt its utorrent itself, I've never had any issues with it, and up until last month I used it a LOT (now I use usenet for my free sh*t, it's far better.)

Anyways if you killed your connection and the problem went away, then I'd suspect a memory leak in your NIC driver. Torrents generate a large amount of small packets to and from numerous destinations and sources. If you have a problem with utorrent, odds are you're going to have the same problem with other torrent clients as well.
