ESET's NOD32 Antivirus program includes a variety of scanning methods. In addition to the traditional automatic scanning of files as they're accessed and modified on the computer, ESET automatically scans application Internet traffic. The uTorrent BitTorrent client sends and receives a large amount of web traffic when it's downloading files, and NOD32's automatic Internet traffic scanning can function as a bottleneck, reducing Internet traffic speed. You can fix this incompatibility by disabling web access protection for uTorrent in NOD32's configuration window. Files uTorrent downloads will still be automatically checked for viruses and spyware by NOD32 when they complete or when you open them, but NOD32 won't monitor the download process itself.
