Re: Skype 'updates'

You might try a complete uinstall and then reinstall as described here:

 

https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA10634/How-can-I-completely-uninstall-and-then-reinstall-Skype

 

Maybe that will remove whatever pesky registry entry is preventing a new install from completing.

Re: Can't install skype

I cant install skype and it is annoying that no one seems to have an answer.  Its now two days spent doing this.  Could someone have a talk with those guys and find out what the problem is, we are having withdrawal symptoms.
