    Yeah I stopped using uTorrent a while ago. I got sick of going into settings and manually disabling ads. I use qBittorent, since it's the only one offered by Ninite.

    Ik where you can a great collection of freewares that can fix / configure / analyse your pc

    GeGeek, tho it is a donationware but you are paying the person who bundles all free softwares for his time and commitment to the project, right now it contains over 700 programs which is about 10gb after you updated everything

    It also includes useful links and browsers / antivirus to install.

    Anyway

    Google Chrome is bae, and dns jumper too

    uTorrent doesn't track you, but they do bundle a bunch of shitware in the installer. Just have to read it carefully instead of just spamming 'Next'.
