Whenever I open my Downloads folder (the one that came with the default install, where my browser and torrent downloads go) on my Windows 7 PC, my Internet connect dies for a few minutes. I'm usually on my MacBook as well, and I notice on here that it is in fact the wireless network that goes out (it disappears from AirPort), not just the Internet connection.
I only recently deduced that the folder was the source of the problem. I tried turning off network sharing for the folder, but it made no difference. I have no idea how this is even possible. Does anyone have any ideas?
The folder currently houses probably upwards of 100 GB of movie files, and maybe a few miscellaneous other stuff.
Thanks in advance!
