Turn Off Skype Pop Up Advertisement Messages As Well As Skype Tip And Help Messages

By default the Skype application enables two annoying configuration items that can be in the way when using Skype. The first item is labeled Skype Promotions and will pop up an window over the top of your Skype friends list that offers deals typically on Skype services. The second item is labeled Help and Skype tips which is less annoying than the Promotions pop over however it still can get in the way and visiting the Skype support site will provide the same results. Both of these items are configured in the Skype client under Alerts & messages. An example of a Skype Promotion is displayed below and as you can see it will hover right over your Skype friends list.
