Anyone????? I have the latest skype version 188.8.131.52, Windows7 64bit. Unable to get rid of SMS message History???
Skype history is stored in a file called main.db. Deleting main.db will delete your history.
main.db is located in C:\Users\YourPCUserName\AppData\Roaming\Skype\Your
Hmmmm.... I probably should've suggested just renaming main.db lest you want to restore it. However, your contacts and their profile pictures should return as they're also stored on a Skype server.
What you might try to delete the rest of the data you want to clear is quit Skype, then Windows key + r, type %appdata% <enter>, and rename the \Sykpe folder \Skype_old.
That will cause other data files, config.xml, etc., to be recreated from scratch when you restart Skype. You can always swap the \Skype_old folder back if you find renaming does anything you don't want it to do.
