    It should be...

    And what Settings in Safari are you referring to??

    Never did anything like that when I installed uTorrent. Works fine too for me.

    You might have accidentally dragged it under Devices. Just drag it out.

    If uTorrent shows up under Devices, it is stored in a mountable disk image (DMG), from where you should drag the application to the Applications folder and start it from there. After the copy process, eject the DMG and delete it if you want.
