I have tried everything imaginable to get rid of these two.  I can delete Skype via 

control panel, but it comes back and re-installs itself.  

Click to call will not go away.  When I try to use the control panel I get a message that 

says, "close Chrome browsers to uninstall".   I've tried doing that and still get that same message.

I've even uninstalled Chrome and re-installed it with the same result.

These two are like a bad dream.   

Any help with completely deleting both would be appreciated.

 

Regards, 

Len

If you haven't followed the instructions given in link below....try that.

How can I completely uninstall and then reinstall Skype for Windows desktop?

 

You can also try using Revo in Advanced Mode to remove Skype.

Download Revo Uninstaller Freeware

I ended up downloading and running the Revo app and I think that that got rid of it.  I will get 

back here if it re-appears on my computer.  

Thank you so much for the help.

Good....you can clean up the computer and check for startups and tasks in Windows and browsers using CCleaner.

 

Use CCleaner to remove Temporary files, program caches, cookies, logs, etc. Use the Default settings. No need to use the

Registry Cleaning Tool...risky. Pay close attention while installing and UNcheck offers of toolbars....especially Google.

After install, open CCleaner and run by clicking on the Run Cleaner button in the bottom right corner.

CCleaner - PC Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download

 

If you would like for me to help you do this:

 

Open CCleaner...post the three lists mentioned below using CCleaner:

 

Open CCleaner and click on Tools. Choose Startups. On that page you will see a list of Windows Startups and at the top tabs for each browser and Scheduled Tasks.

At the bottom right of that page you will see a button when clicked will allow you to Copy and Paste the list of Windows Startups and Scheduled Tasks into your next

post. Please do that.

 

Open CCleaner and click on Tools. Choose Uninstall. On that page you will see a list of programs installed on your computer and at the bottom right of that page you

will see a button when clicked will allow you to Copy and Paste that list in your next post. Please do that.
