µTorrent (uTorrent, microTorrent) is a powerful free BitTorrent client with which you can download various files. Among the main advantages of uTorrent are its speed, low system load and ease of use. uTorrent has all the features of a modern torrent downloader: detailed statistics, support for RSS feeds, automatic shutdown, download scheduler…
The interface of uTorrent for Windows is typical for this kind of application. The uTorrent download list occupies the center of the uTorrent client window. All download options are in a drop-down menu. Here you can set the priority for each torrent, limit the download and upload speed, pause or resume the download, open a folder with downloaded files, etc. The client can sort the downloaded content by download end date, size, rating of other users of the program and other parameters.
uTorrent 3.5.0 fixes bugs, includes minor improvements for users of the paid version, and includes changes to the advertising modules and payment system. The list of changes is replete with changes to the built-in ad modules and fixes rare problems in the Pro version. In general, if the user is not very interested in ads and is not an active user of the Pro-version, then for him the new version will be another service update that improves the stability of the program.

Download the uTorrent installer for Windows and run it. The installation wizard window will open. Carefully read the contents of each of the following messages and click “Next”. Accept the terms of the license agreement and refuse to install affiliate software. In addition, here you can configure some settings – read each item and turn off the ones you don’t need. After that the application will be installed and you will be prompted to run it.
To install the language pack, download it, unzip it and put the utorrent.lng file in the folder with the application (usually C:/Users/USER/AppData/Roaming/uTorrent, where USER is the current user). Then select the desired language in the uTorrent settings and restart the application.
If you are looking for a reliable, fast and easy torrent client, uTorrent is the one for you. The only thing you may not like is the built-in advertising and aggressive imposition of affiliate programs.
In addition to the qualities such as small distribution, high speed and an excellent interface, uTorrent is also very functional. In addition to the standard features, the program offers traffic statistics, a system of remote access to the program, rating and commenting on the distribution, video playback during the download, and Apps Studio service (functionality and multimedia content add-ons).
uTorrent is still the most popular and very high quality torrent client. But the program keeps getting overloaded with additional content that the user doesn’t need: ads, additional content and insistent offer to transfer the user to a paid subscription. Look at other torrent programs.
