µTorrent (or uTorrent) is a lightweight BitTorrent client that supports multiple simultaneous downloads, file level priorities, configurable bandwidth scheduler and speed limiters, even the ability to only run while user activity is detected. Also includes boss key, built-in search function and RSS capability for subscribed downloads.

Note that this software was changed to adware after being added to the PortableFreeware database.

Alternatively, µTorrent Portable is also available, which automatically adjusts paths.

@robzuc: see 'What is "portable"' on the "about" page: https://www.portablefreeware.com/about.php Not leaving stuff behind is not "stealth" in the parlance here, and uTorrent works fine when moving from machine to machine and saves your settings.

After i extracted uTorrent.exe 3.5.5 with 7-zip in the extracted folder there are couple of .dll files. Are they needed? Can i delete them?
