I went to my registry and deleted any and - I thought - all references to skype, yet on installation, I get a message saying that there is a fatal error, cannot remove older skype 5.8. What is the deal?!? Does anyone know of another system similar to skype that will cooperate with me. I can't find a phone number to talk to a real person. This is my LAST attempt at installing skype!!
You can try this installer to see if it will work for you:
