    I just started uTorrent and got this pop-up window:

    I get a new window everytime I restart uTorrent.

    I downloaded ad-ware/spy-ware/etc. remover from Macupdate but I had nothing so my guess, uTorrent SPAM!

    uTorrent 1.5.14
    Mac OS X Lion 10.7.3

    I just removed uTorrent. Will never use this software again! :mad:

    I should add I only got the popup ad once, unlike the OP who is getting it each times he opens utorrent.

    I think you have to press cancel instead of close (x) and is not showing anymore.

    uTorrent ToS and FAQ: "We oppose spyware and adware."... but "In an attempt to provide increased value to our visitors, we may choose various third party web sites or services to link to, and frame within, the Sites or Services."

    I will never use this software again. never!
