OS: Windows 7 x64 Bittorrent version: 7.9.2 build 37251 (12.12.2014) How to cause this problem: Go to advanced settings and change value of gui.show_plus_upsell to false, exit program to save settings. Start Bittorrent again and put PC into hibernation. Start computer again from hibernation and check Bittorrent and you will see that advertisement in left corner is active again because gui.show_plus_upsell reset itself to true.
