    So I was wondering where the main Utorrent folder is for mac? I'd like to know incase I wanna reset default settings, or even uninstall the total app. Can anyone tell me where it's located? Thanks!

    The µTorrent folder is probably in the ~/Library/Application Support folder.

    You have the app itself in /Applications

    Then a folder in Application Suport and one plist file. ~ = your user folder name.

    ~/Library/Application Support/uTorrent/
    ~/Library/Preferences/com.bittorrent.uTorrent.plist

    I download the latest version from their site, but if I choose not to download/install a 'downloadbar', it quits and never installs.

    Any bloatware-free version to download?
    (but not an old one...)

    Assuming you actually downloaded the legit version, you might as well look for alternatives like Transmission.

    I'd ditch them entirely, and go for Transmission or something better. It's hilarious that anyone would still try to get away with bait-and-switch tactics like tricking people into changing their homepage and installing clutter against their better judgement.

    I think you are right.
    May be it is time for a change.

    Another vote for Transmission, it is the simplest, no-frills, torrenting software out there. µTorrent is crap compared to it.

    Don't forget ~/Caches..

    My routine with removing any app is checking these three places always,, and sometimes in Extensions. but most times those 3 folders are enough.

    Yes, but I think you meant ~/Library/Caches/
