A nice and useful guide I found on some random skype forum I'd like to share

0. Close skype
1. Open-up the control panel.
2. Open-up "Network & Internet" then "Internet Options".
3. Go to the "Security" tab.
4. Click on the "Restricted Sites" icon, then the "Sites" button below it.
5. Type "https://apps.skype.com/" (without the quotes) into the text box and click "Add"
6. Close and apply the changes.

Then
Go to:

%AppData%\Skype\

Click on the folder that is the same name as your Skype User name.

Open the config.xml in your fav txt editor and change this line:

<AdvertPlaceholder>1</AdvertPlaceholder>
Change the 1 to 0 (zero). Mark the file as read only.

Then start skype!
