How to Disable Sponsored Ads in uTorrent

So you want to disable Sponsored Ads which is shown in the uTorrent. It is optional and can be disabled using its Advanced Settings (also in newer versions 3.4 +)

In the newer versions, like uTorrent 3.4.2 sponsored ads are shown in the UI which can be turned off with its advanced settings. Many people know about this trick but not all of the users knows how to disable them in their application.

In version 3 and later versions of uTorrent, Sponsored Ads are shown within the application and many people thinks that they are needed to buy the full version to disable them, but that's not true. These Ads are optional and can be turned off using its Advanced settings. But before going forward and start tweaking, I will suggest you to handle it with care as it can cause blocking of downloading of your torrents if you disable the settings which is necessary for getting and downloading torrent files.
