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?
First you need to go to your control panel. (these instructions below are in Windows 10, however they still can work in Windows XP, Windows 7, and Windows 8)
Click into “Network and Internet.”
Click into “Internet Options.”
Click the “Security Tab,” click on “Restricted Sites,” and then click into “Sites.”
Add player.kmpmedia.net to the list of restricted sites.
Now close KMPlayer, re-open it and the sidebar will no longer appear.
As always I love to hear what you think below in the comments!

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