The above video tutorial resulted in higher download speeds on µTorrent for most of the users. Changes to the default preferences in µTorrent can help increase download speeds and allow you to have greater control over the program. However, it is not helpful to everyone and many even ended up getting lower download speeds than before. This problem can be fixed by simply restoring the modified settings to µTorrent to the default ones. Restoring the settings in µTorrent will remove any customized download and bandwidth preferences and give you a chance to correct or tweak problematic settings.cTo reset the settings µTorrent back to default, you will have to delete two files having the name settings with an extension of .dat and .old from the application data folder.
First things first, close the µTorrent program by clicking on the “File” button in the menu bar and then clicking the “Exit” option. (Note: Clicking the “X” button in the upper-right corner of the screen only minimizes uTorrent. It does not close the program.)
Open the Run command window by pressing Windows logo key + R key on your keyboard or just search Run on the Start menu.
Inside the text box of the Run window, enter the following text

You have to delete these two files.
Restart the µTorrent. If it still does not work then try restarting your computer.
By following the above procedure, µTorrent is going to create another settings.dat. Hence, getting rid of the customized settings.
