If you use torrents and your torrent software uTorrent has suddenly been overrun with slow-loading banner adverts and nags, I can recommend the free open source qBittorrent. Almost the same as uTorrent in terms of the interface, and it takes about half an hour to swop over if you’ve been seeding a half-dozen or so torrents. Note qBittorrent’s ability to set time-of-day on upload/download speeds, so as to automatically increase them across all torrents at times when you will be away from your PC.

Keep in mind that, after uninstalling uTorrent, it leaves behind a big backup cache of all your downloaded .torrent files in C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\uTorrent
