I followed the following instructions on another part of the forum and now I can't use or uninstall the program because "you don't have permissions", so how do I get permissions back after I did the following:

This is indeed the ad helper app for uTorrent, but alarmingly uses as much or more processor / memory than uTorrent itself. The solution I found was to Deny permissions to users for the app.

 

With uTorrent RUNNING:

 

1) Ctrl+Alt+Delete

    In the running processes, right-click on utorrentie.exe (Windows 7) or webhelper (under background processes, windows 10) and click "Open File Location." 

 

2) Right-Click on utorrentie.exe (or webhelper), click properties, go to the security tab.

 

3) Click on Edit, and click on Deny for "Full Control" on all of the users listed (including SYSTEM).

 

4) Go back to task manager and kill all instances of utorrentie.exe or webhelper

 

Congrats! No more Ads, and uTorrent no longer bogs down your computer!

You are trying to uninstall Utorrent?

 

You can try and take ownership of the program.

 

As with any time you make a registry change, you should back it up first.

First try Geek Uninstaller, on normal mode, if that does not work then force mode.

Also, if you want to block ads. Then stop them before they start, with an ad blocking DNS Server.
