cryptostorm freezes sometimes when disconnecting

Postby jay2007techhh » Sun Jan 01, 2017 5:22 am

My computer specs
Windows 10 (1607) 64x Education edition with all updates
Intel Core i3 CPU @ 1.8 GHz, 4 GB RAM, Intel HD Graphics 4000
Cryptostorm widget 3.0.0.64

Sometimes my connection drops, so I click on "disconnect" on the widget. It freezes when it get to the part it says "set dns back to dnscrypt - proxy". Sometimes it'll eventually finish (like 2 minutes) other times it stays frozen.

If it helps, I created "dump file" for "client.exe (32x) from task manager. If you need the dump file, I can "PM" someone with the link

If more info is needed, feel free to ask :D

This happens with me too... but only if I switch off the router, and then try to disconnect via widget... it stalls on the reverting to dnscrypt part.

I suppose your situation is the same, in relation to "dropped connection vs router turned off"... the internet feed is broken and the widget cannot do its job.

I am not sure if this can be rectified or not, since the widgets role is to connect/disconnect; its 2nd function is nerfed if the connection drops or device is turned off.

Uncheck the WebRTC blocking stuff in the widget and this shouldn't happen any more. Just use browsers that can either turn off or block WebRTC connections (like Firefox).
