Disable Ads in uTorrent

Quick note about µTorrent, if you use it and hate ads. It works for me in version 3.4.1.

To turn off ads and offers, open Options > Preferences > Advanced. Here you'll find a large list of flags for the app and a filter box. Search for and disable the following flags:
  • offers.left_rail_offer_enabled / left_rail_offer 
  • gui.show_plus_upsell
  • offers.sponsored_torrent_offer_enabled / sponsored_torrent_offer_enabled
  • bt.enable_pulse
  • gui.show_notorrents_node
  • offers.content_offer_autoexec

Note1: These flags may be named slightly differently depending on which version of the app you're using. Be careful when editing things if you're not entirely sure what they do.

Note2: If the top bar ad still doesn't go away, just restart the application.

Note3: You may prefer to use an older version and no ads out-of-the-box. Version 2.0.4 and 2.2.1 are safe to try. These can be found either on or

Note4: Add search providers
