      If you have Google Chrome, Adblock and Adblock Plus work great. They remove YouTube ads as well

    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.
