Can't uninstall Skype Click to Call for Chrome

Every time I close chrome or try to uninstall click to call I get this message: "there is a problem with this windows installer package. A script required for this install to complete could not be run. contact your support personnel or package vendor."

I really don't want the click to call although it does work, but I am really annoyed by constant message. I've tried uninstalling from the chrome toolbar, control panel, reinstalling it, and even changing/repairing it every time I'm met with the same message.

Any ideas to make it go away?

Your problem might be that Vbscript is not enabled on your computer. See this:

Some users have also reported that it was necessary first to uninstall Chrome, then uninstall Click to Call and so install Chrome again.

I've wasted so much time with this problem, I'll never purchase skype credits again.

It was expected for Skype to start packing your computer with crapware after it was purchased by Microsoft

Re: Can't uninstall Skype Click to Call for Chrome

I'm having the same issue. I can't remove Click to Call because the installer is asking me to close all Chrome Windows before continuing. I have no Chrome Windows open either.  How do I resolve this?

You may need to uninstall Chrome, uninstall Click-to-Cal and then re-install Chrome again.
