This'll work:

Create a new folder somewhere, call it "uTorrent" or whatever you like (but be sure you like it where it is) - preferably in C:\Program Files.

Move utorrent.exe into that folder (or leave it if it's already in Program Files).

Open Notepad (start/programs/accessories/notepad or start/run notepad [ok]).

Without typing anything into the file, save it. Browse to the folder you put utorrent.exe in, and save it as "settings.dat" WITH QUOTES around the name (so it doesn't add ".txt" to the end).

Now open uTorrent and it should now save its settings to that folder instead of trying to write to %appdata%\uTorrent. ;)
