How to disable ads in uTorrent


You may have read about BitTorrent including ads in their popular torrent client recently. Not everyone were pleased with this decision. Fortunately disabling these ads is just a few mouse clicks away. And the best part is you don’t need any additional software to do this. That’s right , we can disable it from within the app.


Let me walk you through the steps to disable those ads in the UI:

First, open uTorrent (or BitTorrent) and Click on Options>Preferences

Now Click on Advanced in the left panel.

1. In the search bar found in the right panel of the advanced tab, start typing the following text to access the settings for it.

left_rail_offer

2. Then double click on the text in the right panel to change the value to false. You could also set the radio button to false and click OK.

Now repeat the above steps and change the value to false, for each of the settings below:

gui.show_plus_upsell

sponsored_torrent_offer_enabled

bt.enable_pulse

gui.show_notorrents_node

offers.content_offer_autoexec

Now close and re-open uTorrent. No more ads in the interface.

  1. Wow. Worked like a charm. Now, if only we could get rid of the ads in our web browsers….if only….
    thanks for the tip; much appreciated.

  2. oh thank you thank you thank you! the ads in bottorrent were always – ALWAYS – these stupid, moronic ads for girls! Isn’t there anything to sell other than women with their breasts sticking out? What a progressed world we live in…

  3. In BitTorrent 7.8.1, the advanced options are offers.sponsored_torrent_offer_enabled and offers.left_rail_offer_enabled.
    Also, there is an Options menu tem “Show featured content” which should be unchecked.

  4. Oh sweet thanks !! I had videos with sounds that was scary the shit out of me the first time it appeared and didn’t know where it came from!
