using YM and want to get rid of annoying ads ?

here's how to do it - Not my findings, though is useful to share :)

Open Regedit, navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Yahoo\pager\YUrl and create a new string key named Messenger Ad that has the value * (an asterisk).

Other keys you can create to remove ads from Yahoo Messenger:

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

This works for YM 7.5 and also for the new 8.0 Beta which I've installed today. Thus the reason for this post :)
