Remove Yahoo Messenger Ads

There are two methods:

1. The automated and the simplest method, just download and run the included Batch file from the archive.

Download: http://rapidshare.com/files/36536751/noYMads.zip
Note: You must close the Messenger from the taskbar Before running the batch file.

2. The Manual method. So follow this steps:

a.) Launch Registry Editor (Start -> Run -> Regedit).
b.) Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\yahoo\pager\YUrl
c.) Replacing the following registry values with dummy asterisk (*):

Messenger Ad
Webcam Upload Ad
Webcam Viewer Ad
Webcam Viewer Ad Big
Webcam Viewer Ad Medium
Change Room Banner
Conf Adurl
Chat Adurl

NOTE: If the registry key doesn’t exist, simply create a new String Value registry key with the name by right clicking on the above registry branch and select New -> String Value.

d.) Close Registry Editor and launch Windows Explorer.
e.) Go to C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\Cache\
f.) Locate the file urls.xml
g.) Clear the content of urls.xml
h.) Save the empty urls.xml file (it should be an empty file).
i.) Change the attributes of urls.xml to Read-Only by right click on the file and select properties, and click on Read-only.

And Thats It. Enjoy the banner and stupid ads free Yahoo Messenger. Please comment if you liked this trick.
