Hide the annoying ‘featured torrent’ bar in uTorrent 3.2.2
Around August, BitTorrent Inc. announced that they will be carrying ads in the popular uTorrent client to increase their revenue. They also promised including an ‘opt-out’ feature. However, the latest build of uTorrent 3.2.2 beta – build 28447 – includes an annoying ‘Featured Torrent’ bar, with no apparent opt-out mechanism.
A little bit of digging around the settings and I’ve figured out how to hide it. Here’s how. Click Options → Preferences. Then click on Advanced. Now scroll down a bit and look for the setting
offers.sponsored_torrent_offer_enabled and set it to False. BAM! I’ve also included a few screenshots to show you how to do this.
