This is a simple method to disable ads in Skype for all platforms but it will also disable Skype Home.

On Windows, ads in Skype can be disabled by setting host address for apps.skype.com to the invalid IP address: 0.0.0.0

Add this line:

0.0.0.0 apps.skype.com

To file:

c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
