How to Disable KMPlayer Ads in 5 Easy Steps

I love KMPlayer and have been using it for years. However one thing I don’t love is ads. And with the newer versions of KMPlayer they have a new sidebar which shows you ads. Follow the steps below to disable the sidebar from appearing every time you launch the KMPlayer.

Tired of seeing these KMPlayer Sidebar Ads?

  1. new ad in the form of two buttons with the words ieEm on them….kmplayer quickly becoming the most annoying player out there

  2. Hi, thanks for sharing the method. It works.
    Although, the extra/additional window-pane still appears. How to get rid of that?

    • I stopped it in my pc by adding a new rule in my firewall blocking kmplayer.exe and kmploading.exe from both incoming and outgoing connections.

      • Thank you,

        The firewall blocking did the trick. None of the other above methods worked because they (KMPlayer developers) had worked around it.
