    Disable Adds (uTorrent 3.4.2) May be similar in earlier version.

    You can disable ads by going to Preferences > Advanced

    Set offers.featured_content_badge_enabled to false.
    Set offers.featured_content_notifications_enabled to false.

    As for the "Upgrade to uTorrent Plus" image, you can remove that too if you wish.
    Set gui.show_plus_upsell to false.

    Users are reporting that uTorrent had silently* installed cryptocurrency software from Epic Scale as part of version 3.4.2 build 28913 and up.
    Once installed, EpicScale uses some of the computer's spare processing power to generate cryptocurrency (such as Bitcoin or Litecoin).
    *It can only be installed if you forgot to dis-allow the software to be installed during setup. So actually you were given a choice.
    If you did forget you can partially uninstall EpicScale through the Add/Remove Programs menu in Windows. A registry modification will remain in the ProgramData/Epicscale folder, though you can safely delete this folder once the uninstall is complete.

    Or you can just dig up an older version of UTorrent which is free of bloatware.

    2.2.1 is the last best version of it.
