If you are annoyed with the advertisements in Origin from EA, then here are the instructions to remove the ads from Origin.

This hack works on Windows Vista and on Windows 7:

  • [li]Close & exit Origin
    [/li]
    [li]Using your file explorer go to: C:\Users<username>\AppData\Roaming\Origin
    [/li]
    [li]Find Settings.xml and open it with a text-editor (notepad is not your best choice here, it doesn’t do what you need, try Wordpad or similar editor)
    [/li]
    [li]Modify the PromoBrowserOriginStartedLastShown and PromoBrowserGameFinishedLastShown keys to these values:
    [/li]
    <Setting key=“PromoBrowserOriginStartedLastShown” type=“2” value=“999999999”/>

    <Setting key=“PromoBrowserGameFinishedLastShown” type=“2” value=“999999999”/>

There you go, no longer are crappy promos shown on Origin.
