Or Keep uTorrent and get rid of "WebHelper" that causes hight CPU usage

Find the folder where utorrentie.exe is located. In my case it was C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\uTorrent\updates\<version>

Close uTorrent.

Delete the utorrentie.exe file, create a new empty text file and rename it to "utorrentie.exe". Right Click it, go to Properties and make it Read Only.

That's it. uTorrent will work normally, but there won't be ads playing in it and no more CPU hogging from the poorly written background process.
