Removing uTorrent ads

When BitTorrent bought over μTorrent, they promised users that all adverts would be optional. They have, however, made it harder and harder to hide the adverts including now a set of hidden options. Thankfully users have found how to access those hidden options.

Turn off ALL Ads/Featured Content/Bundle Crap in μtorrent/Bittorrent:

Options > Preferences > Advanced

Turn ALL settings to false:

  • bt.enable_pulse
  • distributed_share.enable
  • gui.show_notorrents_node
  • offers.left_rail_offer_enabled
  • gui.show_plus_upsell
  • offers.content_offer_autoexec
  • offers.sponsored_torrent_offer_enabled
  • offers.featured_content_badge_enabled
  • offers.featured_content_notifications_enabled
  • offers.featured_content_rss_enabled

Options > Preferences > Hold Shift+F2 while clicking Advanced (Hidden fields)

Turn ALL settings to false:

  • gui.show_gate_notify
  • gui.show_plus_av_upsell
  • gui.show_plus_conv_upsell
  • gui.show_plus_upsell_nodes
