While logged into Skype from the main Skype program window menu do:

 

Skype -> Sign Out

 

Then uncheck the sign me in when skype starts checkbox, sign back in.

Re: Skype remembers my username and password

I want Skype to start when the computer starts ( I have the box checked)

I want Skype sign me in when Skype starts (I have the box checked)

 

But it won't do it.  I have 5.5 which the updater says is uptodate.
