After using Skype for some years on my Windows 7 ASUS laptop suddenly all trace of it has disappeared! No icon, no entry in Control Panel uninstall programmes.After downloading Skype when I attempt to load the programme an error message "Object already exists" appears and action ceases. Help! What can I do?

Welcome to BC!

For help with your Skype problem post a new topic either in the Windows 7 Forum or

in All Other Applications Forum - BleepingComputer.com.

Your comment seems to have little to do with my Skype problem, I assume that you also have little to do.

Hello and welcome velhote. The reason you see it that way is because this is the Intro section.
All help is provided in the particular forums. So buddy is giving good advice..
