I agree. But only for the utorrent v.2.2.1. Anything released afterwards are total bloatware. You can still see some indications of utorrent becoming a bloatware even in v.2.2.1.
Stevenlord; actually, i would have to disagree on the basis that BitTorrent technologies are implimented into many online MMOs nowadays to distribute updates (ahem* World of Warcraft) so by that measure I'd say use of Bit Torrent Technologies are roughly on par with quasi-legal and illegal usage. This was a big deal some years back as ISPs were getting railed with average-McUser complaints about their ISP blocking the technologies on the basis of their parent companies thinking exactly how you do, as in "OMG BitTorrent is pirating technology we must stop it now!" and had to face the tune of nearly 20million subscribers across those ISPs pummeling their Customer Service lines with complaints about how their legitimately paid-for service is being screwed up by paranoid ISPs and their parent companies.
I had been using uTorrent for a very long time and today I decide to try qBittorrent. The reason is that, with very update, uTorrent has been trying to use trickeries to add toolbars, advertisements, and basically things beyond users' control. For example, the lastest version doesn't allow users to choose where to install the program. Why? Because they have implement auto-update feature which will only work if UAC is bypassed. Yes, uTorrent gives you "option" to disable this feature, but who knows what it's doing behind. Remember UAC is a security measure to protect windows users from unintentionally running untrusted applications. And the worst part is that you cannot uninstall uTorrent using windows uninstaller. What a joke this is. I've completely lost my trust to this ludicrous developer.
