    uTorrent 3.5.5 Build 45146, 32 Bit.

    There is a uTube video on how to get rid of the banner ads, and all ads. there is even one on the best settings, to get the fastest downloads. It would be better to watch the video than for me to give the instructions.

    Can I use Windows Defender and another Anti-Virus?

    Hi guys & ladies, since my last post on this thread, I have given up on Malwarebytes, Which I was using with Norton 360. Besides Malwarebytes Techs being a bit rude, I didn't like the fact that there is no protection against auto billing. You must go to there Support each year, to stop auto...

    Problems with windows 10 after updating
