Problem installing uTorrent with Ask toolbar

I use uTorrent for long time now, and now when I start it I get installation wizard to install new 1.8.3 build 15772 version. Ok... So I start to install, and everything is going fine, until I get to options to install Ask toolbar. Of course, I deselected installation of such toolbar, and clicked install button (to install uTorrent), which has that small admin/shield icon, and nothing happens. I click again, nothing again... So I selected option to agree and install Ask toolbar (I can remove it later), and it did successfully installed in all browser :/ but, uTorrent still don't want to install. I'm getting install button enabled and when I click it nothing happens, step with option to install Ask toolbar is not longer there.

You don’t really have to install anything. De-select the option to install µTorrent (it will then run in the current directory), and un-check all of the Ask.com boxes. It should run without a problem. You can also try getting a beta release which does not have the toolbar installation. Once you’ve passed the “installation” process, then you don’t have to see it again the next time you run it because the current version is set in the config file.

"Here is a manual removal guide:

Go to your browsers' settings and choose add-on/extensions.
Search for anything that is related to ask toolbar (and also any other suspicions file name) and remove it.

Again from the setting, change your homepage back to normal (that is if it has been changed)

Open Control Panel and search for any program or file with the same name and remove them.

Open your windows Explorer and search again for any left file or folder containing ask search or ask toolbar in their name.

I suggest you also read this step-by-step ask toolbar removal guide:http://www.virus-delete.com/en/guides/browser-hijacker-removal/20130814-how-to-remove-ask-search-toolbar-through-isafe-virus-removal-tool.html"

µTorrent has actually always been portable! It's only one executable. The setup has been added later. It launches when you first execute utorrent.exe, but you can just skip it, and µTorrent will (should) be launched. I still have one of the first versions which is only 100K or something in my tool archive somewhere (when I heard they were bought by another company first thing I did was thoroughly backup that executable).
