How to get rid of the new "stay together" ad in Skype
« on: January 29, 2014, 03:48:15 PM »

If your Skype is set to automatically update, you either have or will soon have an annoying ad in your chat window that looks like this:



I got no gripes with ads in a free product but putting one in this spot is kind of extremely a dickish thing to do.

To get rid of it:

1. In Notepad, open this file: C:/Windows/system32/drivers/etc/hosts
2. Add these to the file and save:
127.0.0.1               a.rad.msn.com
127.0.0.1               nym1.ib.adnxs.com
127.0.0.1               c.betrad.com
127.0.0.1               usefb.adsrvr.org
127.0.0.1               secure.adnxs.com
127.0.0.1               attracto.com
127.0.0.1               ads1.msads.net
127.0.0.1               m.adnxs.com
3. Open command prompt
4. ipconfig /flushdns
5. Clear your IE temporary internet files
6. restart Skype

I don't know if all of those things in the hosts file are necessary (m.adnxs.com definitely is) but adding them doesn't seem to hurt anything.

EDIT: I also found another list at some point, and I've heard of people getting ads lately too, so maybe add these as well:
Code: [Select]

It's the only one I ever saw, so I'd imagine it's always the same one. But now it's the same gone.
