Probably because this program appears to be a P2P program using BitTorrent and as soon as you connect it is trying to grab stuff of other peoples' computers and they are doing the same to theirs.

Pop down to Dixons tomorrow - they are bound to have a sale on and, hey, it's legal to buy CDs from them.

As well as the reason supplied by VoG™ I am nearly sure that Azureus is programmed in Java so unless you have a fairly meaty CPU it will slow your system down quite noticably.

If you want good cheap music try, CD-WOW, Tesco Jersy, amongst others, their prices are including VAT and delivery to your door.

All P2P software use up your resources.

Removing it from your system is the best answer.

As with any of these types of programs you have to configure them correctly to suit you.

the most likely suspect is that its based on Java like phono said. Anything that uses java on my system seems to slow the system down. You could try a different bit-torrent client and give that a try.
