Since version 3.2, uTorrent displays ADs in the form of a "Featured Torrent" banner and a small square advertising in the sidebar. Is there a way to disable those?

enter image description here


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

Preferences Dialog
