    Hi,

    Anyone know how to block Skype adverts?

    I’ve tried what I consider to be the usual stuff … gone into the internet control panel and added both apps.skype.com and g.msn.com. I’ve also added both sites to my hosts file, redirecting them to 127.0.0.1.

    Clearly, since this seems to work for everyone else out there (and used to work for me), MS have changed the way their adverts work but it seems to me they still must direct their adverts from somewhere so there must be something I can block to stop them.

    Any ideas?

    Keke
