Remove uTorrent Ads 3.4.2 and 3.x

utorrentThe popular microtorrent client uTorrent has grown so popular that the developers decided to monetize it with some ads. I mostly use the WebUI remotely so the ads don't affect me but removing ads seems to be quite popular so here is a guide to do it that should increase performance on older systems and decrease the risk of seizure from these flashy ads. Removing the uTorrent 3.x ads from the interface will take about 2 minutes.
