Instructions: Free ICQ 2001b from advertising
While surfing various boards, I found an interesting post on the subject. The boardie 'God' (nice nickname) has taken the trouble to find out how to free ICQ from the ads and adapt the design to Windows XP.
His instructions show exactly how to proceed , depending on whether ICQ was already 'contaminated' by advertising or not. This also includes deleting some files. There is also the option of adapting the design of ICQ almost completely to the Windows XP style, but this only works for users of the operating system. We have started a thread on our board in which you can post your experiences on the topic.
