Upon the initial sync, bitcoin-qt does not sync, it downloads/process/verifies/whatever 50 or so blocks and then stops for no reason at all. The icon on the bottom writes that there are 8 connections, the icon next to it says "catching up blah blah" but the syncing does not continue on to the next block. In task manager there is no cpu activity for the bitcoin-qt process and no disk activity either, memory is at 149mb. I  run it straight for 3 days now, but when it gets stuck it does not process any block.

If I exit and restart the bitcoin-qt it continues for another 50-100 blocks and then stops again. No matter how many times I have done this, it always get stuck.

Another problem is that it takes 4-5 minutes to exit the program and another 4-5 minutes to open it.

Why does it stop syncing and why does it need so much time to open/close the application?

Well now I have a bigger problem... After moving the directory to another folder location as per this guide, bitcoin-qt doesn't even open. Here's the last debug log:

Close bitcoin-qt

Backup your appdata/roaming/bitcoin/blocks   folder. Then delete it, run bitcoin-qt.exe again.


Beware, your wallet.dat is also in the bitcoin folder. If you delete that, you can lose access to your wallet(BTC's)

Ok I trying it now with a new empty directory. It still takes minutes to open, it is stuck on "Loading wallet". Is this normal behaviour?

It is stuck on "Loading wallet" for 15+ minutes with a clean new empty data directory. I gave up and killed the process. There's something wrong with the program. Can anyone help me?

It will take a while to get it up, after purging.  I had to do it on my g/f's computer after the last fork issue and it started to hang on 89% forever(IDK if the fork was related, or just a coincidence). It took 12 hours to get back to normal. She has an older Athlon X3 system, so it's not screaming fast either.


But I concur, look at alternate software. If you don't need to send any BTC's, you can just verify off blockchain.info with your address.
