FileZilla crashes Windows

I am transfering a copy of the Joomla CMS ( from my local development server (Windows XP, Professional, all updates, service packs) onto an FTP-Server (I think Proftpd, some Linux).

This is a regular FTP transfer (port 21), no SSL, no SFTP etc..

Fyi, the files I am trying to upload total 18 MB and they include many .php (= text), .css, graphics and pdf files. Roughly 700 files I'd say.

I am using 4 concurrent connections to upload, I had my settings on 8 before but lowering them to 4 didn't avoid crashing.

Somewhere in the middle of the transfer, the screen freezes. No bluescreen, nothing. It just freezes. There is no read from the HDD when it freezes, I have to manually power down to restart.

I updated FileZilla from 2.2.16 to the latest (2.2.32) today, hoping to solve this, but it didn't fix the issue - it continues to freeze.

I've also tried to transfer the files using Windows Explorer and it works just as expected. Even though through Windows Explorer it's very, very slow.

Right now I am testing the same files/transfer with FireFTP ( and it's working as well. No freezing, no crashes.

What can I do to reproduce this crash?

Not caused by FileZilla. You have eithe broken hardware or broken drivers.

Your reply is extremely helpful! =) So how do you figure?

I am uploading the same files, from the same computer to the same server with two other programs (Windows Explorer and Firefox/FireFTP) which do not cause my system to freeze.
