Hi,

The last couple of days, I have had users come into the office and tell me that Skype has been installed on their computer. We are a small company, no one in IT has pushed an install to any computers, as we have no need for it. Yet I have had 5 or 6 people come and tell me that it has been installed. Yesterday I uninstalled it from the computers and then again this morning it has reinstalled itself to the computers, during the night.

Has anyone had this happen before? How can it be installing itself?

Hopefully someone here can help so I don't have to sign up for a Skype account to post in their forums.

In the update of Windows Server update Services there is made a mistake..

"Skype accidentally rolled out as an update by Microsoft's Windows Server Update Services"

Thanks for that,

hopefully it will clear itself up soon, the weird part was that I had uninstalled it on a bunch of computers Wednesday, and then today It had reinstalled itself. Hopefully I wont come in tomorrow to find the same thing.
