[How To] Remove Annoying Ads / Torrent Suggestions From uTorrent

µTorrent or uTorrent is one of the best and most user friendly Torrent clients besides being extremely popular. But recently, after updating to the version 3.2, I started seeing some suggested torrent downloads at the top right location just above the downloads list on the uTorrent client on my windows PC. This may be a good way for uTorrent to promote popular content and maybe push some sponsored download links as well, but it may not look too good to the users. Also on the bottom left, there was a small square ad which was much less intrusive and felt quite Ok.

After I started seeing this ad, I tried to close it with the small cross mark, but press the cross mark just removes the one suggestion which is visible and another one comes up and this goes on. So you don’t get rid of it by pressing the cross symbol. On some research online, I found one effective way to remove these two ads which I share with you in this article here.
