[How-To] Hide “Featured Torrent” bar in uTorrent 3.2.2

I recently updated to uTorrent 3.2.2 only to find an ugly looking advertisement sporting “Featured Torrent”.

If you find it annoying too, then here’s how you can remove it:

  1. Go Options ->;Preferences
  2. Go to Advanced
  3. In the Filter box, type offer
  4. You’ll find offers.sponsored_torrent_offer_enabled
  5. By default it’s set to true. Select false
  6. Press OK and restart uTorrent

Voila!

By Fred from comments:

Also changing offers.left_rail_offer_enabled to “false” gets rid of the advert box on the bottom left and replaces with the standard “upgrade to pro” add

Thanks Fred!

  1. Also changing offers.left_rail_offer_enabled to “false” gets rid of the advert box on the bottom left and replaces with the standard “upgrade to pro” add

  2. Click on the take survey link to make it disappear, same as the twitter/fb links.

    I also went ahead and removed all potential search engines since I never use that crap anyways. I just wish utorrent had an in program search.

  3. Great to have a problem, do a search and find the solution there — thanks for taking the time to post this.
