Disable Banner Ads in Skype

Last Update: October 10, 2015

For those of you who are frequent users of Skype you might find those banner ads annoying. This can be a real pain if you're doing a video feed, especially if you're using it for business purposes.

I've used this method on both my laptops, one running Windows 7 and the other running Windows 10, works a treat! http://www.cnet.com/how-to/how-to-disable-ads-in-skype/

Thank you, thank you, thank you! If the ads didn't flash so much I wouldn't bother but they are soooo distracting. Done (on both computers). Did I say thank you? ~Marion

P.S. I only had to add the restricted site once in Internet Properties and it worked for both computers.

Excellent! I had to do the second option too, but it works fine. :)

I had to do both options - but what the heck - it worked! It was really annoying me today because I was trying to teach a WA friend (in UK) how to use Pinterest.
