HOW TO REMOVE ADVERTISEMENT IN SKYPE
- Open up the Control Panel and navigate to Network and Internet > Internet Options. Move to the Security tab, click on Restricted Sites and open the Sites dialog with the button underneath. Next you’ll need to add two websites to the list of restricted addresses: apps.skype.com and g.msn.com. Once that’s done, you can save your changes by clicking Apply and close the window with OK.
- To access the configuration files, navigate to the primary hard drive on your computer in an Explorer window and go to Users > Your Username > AppData > Roaming > Skype. You’ll then need to open the folder that’s titled with your Skype ID and find an XML file called config. Right-click that file and choose to open it with Notepad.
- Press Ctrl + F to use the Find function to search for AdvertPlaceholder. You should find a piece of code that reads <AdvertPlaceholder>1</AdvertPlaceholder> — change that 1 to a 0 and you will remove the placeholder from your Skype interface. Save the document and restart Skype for the changes to take effect
