I've been using Tixati for years and I am not a noob. Something about magnet links changed in 2.62 and all version up to 2.66 sometimes cause a crash.
Even the changelog in 2.62 mentions "magnet" multiple times.
Every time a new Tixati version comes out, I try it, but revert to 2.61-1 when a new version still crashes.
2.61-1 does not have the problem.
Here's what happens:
Maybe 1-10% of the time when I click on a magnet link (using Google Chrome), a Windows crash screen pops up for like 1 second and says "Windows needs to restart" or something like that. Often my PC will make a weird crashing sound and then immediately reboot. It's bad because the reboot can't be stopped and it happens fast, so you lose all open work/windows.
I've seen the problem trigger from 2 different sites:
sites removed by Mod and sent to Devs.
My PC is rock solid and pretty much never crashes except for this.
Just trying to help. I want to use new versions of Tixati but I have to keep going back to 2.61-1 until this stops happening. Thanks

have you tried 1.71?
if you click a magnet link (for a second time) that has made you crash, will you crash again?
if you have any magnet links that always crash post them.
if you click the same magnet links in a different browser do they crash?
