Get rid of ads in Skype

Not to say that advertising in the new Skype and interfere with communication. It not only prevents how much irritating for users. Of course, it can be taken for granted, to accept and simply cease to notice, but it is better to try to disable it, because the stop notice ads you are unlikely. If you look, nothing complicated disable ads in Skype no, we can track hosts from which the messenger window is loaded from banner ads and close them with the standard Windows tools, for example, the same firewall.

You can define time server addresses experimentally any tool for monitoring network activity, analyzing traffic at the time of starting Skype. And to save you from unnecessary movements and related errors, post the list of rotating hosts that messenger downloads advertising banners. Here they are:

  • apps.skype.com
  • rad.msn.com
  • api.skype.com
  • adriver.ru
  • static.skypeassets.com

I guess you will not be difficult to create these addresses in the firewall for the appropriate rules. There is an even easier method. In all versions of Windows has a special HOSTS file, allowing the computer owner to control the translation of domain names into network addresses. It is located at the address C:/Windows/System32/drivers/etc and is a normal text file, open and edit which is available in Notepad or other text editor.

Insert in the designated hosts end HOSTS, but so that each of them was 127.0.0.1. Here’s an example: 127.0.0.1 apps.skype.com.

After that, save the HOSTS file and restart Skype. To be sure, you can restart the computer, but usually this is enough to make the annoying banner ads in the past.

And again. To completely «naked» Skype will not work. Although the banner ads more to show, the place allotted to them, will remain as can be seen on the attached screenshot. In addition, on the main page of Skype you’re most likely to find unattractive message that Skype can not load the page. However, if you act selectively by blocking the hosts one at a time, you will be able to achieve the best result.
