Thank you very much for your feedback.
Having read your comments I immediately stopped working with the new advertiser I used for installer advertising.
The installer has been updated and the bugs regarding the "disable ads" function should be fixed.
Tweaks for Skype™ can be downloaded here:

This program is terrible, it (installer) tries to download a file called "Bi_Downloader.exe" which is flagged as dangerous by Most anti virus Engines.

The program itself tries to get you to run it as admin after it's installed in the windows folder!

It should never be in the windows folder this day and age, the app is written in the .NET 3.5 framework and the author should know how to use data folders and know writing to an xml settings file or changing keys in hlm does not need such drastic privileges.

You can just reflect it and see the reg keys or xml files it's tampering with.

It looks like a good program, but watch the installer. It does a lot of crap and if you don't read what's going on for each step, you might be loading a lot of useless stuff also before you get to the EULA.
