Set the following settings to false in the advanced settings of uTorrent. Some variable names differ depending on your uTorrent version:

  • bt.enable_pulse
  • gui.show_notorrents_node
  • gui.show_plus_upsell
  • offers.content_offer_autoexec
  • offers.left_rail_offer_enabled / left_rail_offer
  • offers.sponsored_torrent_offer_enabled / sponsored_torrent_offer_enabled
