Use open-source software instead

about µTorrent · · Helpful Not helpful 6 Helpful

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.

Terrible

about µTorrent · · Helpful Not helpful 6 Helpful

uTorrent is terrible now. A few years ago it used to be a great application, but now it is bloated ads everywhere. I switched from uTorrent to Deluge because it was causing 100% CPU usage but have never gone back. I much prefer Deluge.

Autoclicks its own ads

I don't mind ad-supported, but I do mind getting dating/borderline pornographic ads. Even worse, it clicks on its own ads.

RIP µTorrent

µTorrent was my only Torrent client for many years. But over the time it became a bloated and disgusting adware. I don't see any reason to use it anymore, considering there are lots of good open-source alternatives with better functionality.

I prefer an older version

about µTorrent · · Helpful Not helpful 3 Helpful

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.

Crapware and now a Bitcoin Miner!
It maybe possible to remove both. But its honestly time to move on

Complementary bitcoin mining (at your expense!)

The ads were obnoxious, but this is just absurd and is my final straw with uTorrent

Use version 2.2.1

about µTorrent · · Helpful Not helpful 2 Helpful

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.

No Filter

I like this site when I started using it but years after, it was quite really annoying to see more ads and pop-ups. It was disappointing and the way that they don't filter the ads on screen that are inappropriate for some kids.
