Later versions are bloated and come with ads. Version 2.2.1 is lightweight and has everything you need.

Also stick with Windows NT 4.0 and WinAmp 2.9. It's safer that way. I have not found any ads in the newer versions that cannot be disabled in the options, and sticking with old, networked software exposes you to patched security holes.

Yes, 2.2.1 is where I'm at as well. I'm not going to downgrade to any "newer and better" versions.

While uTorrent is functionally sound software, it's full of ads and other annoyances. You're on AlternativeTo already. Use it! Pick one of the top open-source alternatives, they're all really great and have zero ads or paid upgrades.

BitTorrent protocol is overrated for games, programs and anything with updates.

Delete this app. They made it into an adware with malware bundled in install. go for alternatives (qbittorrent etc.)

Adware. Is it better than freeware? No.

Avoid it. Should not be trusted. Users flocked away from it when they found uTorrent had secretly hid mining software and other BS without telling anyone. qBittorrent is my go-to alternative and has been for many years.

    This software has seen new features over the years, some of which have been made exclusive to the paid version. I simply use a version that has the features that I want.
