Please help. I went to applications and deleted every bit of Skype. I got rid of every last vestige of it on my computer and version 5.5 keeps showing up in my program list and won't uninstall. It keeps lookikng for an .msi file. I can not download a new version without the fatal error occuring. I can not use Skype or any Skype related tools. Any one with any ideas--I would be very glad for the help. Thank you.
You may try the procedure outlined here in order to install a new version of Skype without using any installer program:
Be aware that as of today, the latest Skype version is 18.104.22.168
You should also be advised to make a copy of the currently installed Skype.exe file; just in the case that you will regret the update.
