I've noticed that there is a correlation between uTorrent and NOD32 V3.0.563 What happens is that whenever uTorrent is loaded and downloading*, browsing through Firefox at the same time is like molasses. Yet the NOD32 Kernel is not causing high CPU utilization or any other side effects. *Torrent downloading at about 25% of network download capacity. I have also tried the netsh winsock reset trick. It did not resolve the issue.
