Just earlier today, I was downloading 6 files each around the size of 200mb simultaneously using FlashGet.
Then out of a sudden, my computer immediately flashed a BSOD citing STOP errors related to tcpip.sys.

This is the minidump report generated by BlueScreenView:

This problem happened before sometime ago and it was in exactly the same situation, when I was downloading huge files simulatenously using FlashGet.

I have a hunch that this has something to do with flashget's multithread downloading system.
E.g it opens up to 10 concurrent threads for each download.

But I need to verify is it FlashGet problem or is it something else?

That would be my hunch as well. What version of FlashGet are you using, also what browser are you using IE, Firefox etc.

flashget 1.9.6
firefox 3.5.5

Try downloading FlashGet v3.0 from http://www.amazesoft...en/download.htm, it is a Beta but should work fine. Then update Firefox to 3.5.6 by clicking Help in Firefox then Check for Updates.

Download the same file if possible which was causing the error previously and then let me know how you get on :)

Good stuff, hopefully it stays that way :)

You can increase TCP connections in XP and Vista, but I would only mess with that if you are noticeably struggling with download speeds on files. Most people who use this 'hack' with TCP connections are after better speeds with P2P/Bittorrent files due to many simultaneous connections. Most web downloads, you wouldn't notice much difference at all, if any.

Here is a link which contains some useful information:
