Disable yahoo messenger advertising, make your messenger faster

Did you notice how annoying Yahoo Messenger started to be with newer versions ?
You have enjoyed messenger until one day when everything started to move very slowly on your computer. The main reason for this behavior is the fact that yahoo messenger bombards you with adds. That's right, Yahoo wants more money and advertising is a good bet so it uses your computer resources to frenetically display all kind of adds in the lower part of the messenger's window.
Fortunately for you, there is a solution:
DISABLE Yahoo advertising server !
Instructions are very simple, you need to edit a file with a word processor, Notepad is enough:

1. Open a file editor (notepad) as an administrator

2. Locate and load this file:
C:/Windows/system32/drivers/etc/hosts

3. Add the following line at the end of the text file:

127.0.0.1   insider.msg.yahoo.com

And you are done, what you get is a slim and ready to use, faster ymessenger.
Alternatively you might be interested in downloading an older version of yahoo messenger, version 7, that one was clean and fast, no adds on it. download from here.
