Block ads in Skype

Tired of seeing ads in Skype? You can easily block them in Windows:

  1. Open the Control Panel
  2. Search for and select Internet Options
  3. Click the Security tab, then choose Restricted sites
  4. Click the Sites button
  5. Type in then click Add
  6. Click Close then OK

That is it! Once you restart Skype, the ads should be gone!

BONUS TIP! Open Skype, go to Tools→Options. Select Notifications and then Alerts & messages. Uncheck Promotions. This will get rid of ads for other Skype products, like the one that normally shows up under the contact list. Again, you need to restart Skype after making the change.
