Re: Skype Active X error

I have the same error but I do not wish to unninstall my flash player because that would mean reinstalling internet explorer too which is a pain in the ass. Why do I need IE to install Skype? Why Skype is dependant of an installation of Flash Player on IE rather than any installation of Flash Player. This is clearly why I will tell everybody I know to switch to google Hangout because at least all you need to use Hangoug is Chrome.
