    The registry key change works for YM 10.0.0.X as well. Yahoo changed their ad serving technique & while a hosts file still blocks ‘most’ of the YM ads, they were starting to sneak thru despite updating the hosts file. (Specifically their annoying, blinking flash ads for the personals sites.) So far this simple registry change is working but suspect that each time YM updates one will have to re-tweak the setting.
