December 9th, 2012 b0ddu Posted in How to | No Comments »

BitTorrent Inc’s uTorrent software is one of the most popular torrent downloading software with a user base of over 125 million. It is light weight and contains no bloat. But the latest version of uTorrent software 3.2.2, 3.2.3 has Ads that come in the form of sponsored torrents through which advertisers can reach out to it’s user base. The ads are prominently featured in a yellow bar that sits on top of the torrent list.

uTorrent Ads

After user complaints to include option to opt-out of Ads, they included the latest releaes with an undocumented option for it. You can go to Options > Preferences > Advanced and search filter for – sponsored_torrent_offer_enabled.

Set that to False

disable uTorrent Ads

When this value is set to false the yellow advertisement bar will disappear the next time uTorrent is started.

If that yellow bar doesn’t annoy you, make sure you support the awesome software by not disabling the Ads.
