Remove Ads from Utorrent

Scenario : You fire up uTorrent to download torrents. Its a free utility and you like using it but now it comes loaded with all this crap ads and you don’t like it….so what do you do about it ??

Solution : uTorrent is one of the best torrent clients out there, if you ask me but nowadays (actually since sometime now)…it has started to load all this annoying ads (See below). Here’s a way to turn it off….


Step 1 : Open the uTorrent application. Click “Options” and then select “Preferences” from the menu bar at the top of the page.
Step 2 : Select the “Advanced” option from the list on the left hand side of the preferences window.You will see a box with a long list of advanced options in the center of the window, from this list, scroll down and click to highlight “gui.show_plus_upsell”.
Step 3 : Below the box, there is an option to change the value to either “True” or “False”. Select the “False” value. (This option disables the square ad in the bottom left corner of the application.)

Step 4 : Scroll down the list even further, and click to highlight “offers.sponsored_torrent_offer_enabled” (you can use the searchbox at the top if you cannot find it)and again, select the “False” value below the box. (This option disables the banner ad which appears at the top of your torrent list.)
Step 5 : Click “OK”. The changes should be implemented immediately but if they are not, then you will have to exit the application once and restart it.
Step 6 : Open the uTorrent application and enjoy using uTorrent without those annoying ads!

And we’re done, this is what the end result will look like :
