1. Thank you Asyn I was unaware of that. One frustration solved.
2. Now if I could get these dump files attached to an e-mail I would be even happier.

1. You're welcome.
2. Wait for essexboy, he'll probably send a PM to let you know his e-mail.

The minidumps indicate one of your system drivers.  So I would go to the manufacturers website for you computer and see if there are any updated chipset drivers

Went to the manufacturers site and updated every driver they offered. I am still having the same problem. >:(

Unfortunately the minidumps do not specify which driver is at fault, they use the generic ntoskernel  failure

Temporarily uninstall Avast and see if the problem continues

I uninstalled Avast on Friday afternoon and ran my Bit Torrent client off and on all weekend up to as much as 18 hours at a time and not one problem. With Avast it would shut down within minutes usually. I guess the posts I read were true. Any suggestions what I can do.

That wold appear to suggest that it may be a webshield problem so I am not to sure where to go from here

Can I turn webshield off without affecting the rest of Avast? And do you think that will solve the problem?

In my opinion webshield is the most important part as it is your first line of defence, it may be worth experimenting with setting like deepscreen/hardened mode to see if they have an affect

I have looked around on Avast and I have no idea where these settings are. I have used both programs in tandem for several years on this computer and never had an issue. Is there something new on Avast that would have started this issue? I really like Avast but if I have to give up one for the other it will have to go since it seems to effect all torrent programs. I know from other forums that I am not the only one with this issue. Unfortunately a real solution has yet to be found.

Just wanted to thank everybody who helped me out with my problem. Especially Essexboy who was always very prompt and accurate with a response. And also very patient when I wasn't quite sure what he was talking about. It may not have exclusively solved the problem but now I know what the problem is and can work around it and that eliminates a major source of my headache. I raise a toast and thanks. Cheers!

Sorry that I could not be more helpful, I am a bit hindered though as I never use torrents so do not know enough about them
