Here is a Mr. FixIT

 

Diagnose and fix program installing and uninstalling problems automatically

 

Click the Run Now Button.

 

Then try uninstalling the Click to Call Plugin.

 

If still the error persists;

 

Uninstall Chrome First > Then Uninstall Click to Call Plugin > After that Install Chrome again.

Temporary disable Antivirus/Firewall. You can reactivate your Antivirus/Firewall after downloading or installation. You may try another browser and also try resetting your browser settings.

Re: can't remove click to call from chrome

about fixit app:

disabling antivirus and firewall didn't change anything.

tried to launch it in compatibility mode - also didn't work.

 

about removing 'click to call' app:

made firefox the default browser - still same error.

removed it from chrome extensions, but it remained in windows programs list.

i had to uninstall google chrome, then the 'click to call' app finally uninstalled! yay! :happy:

 

hope this helps anyone else who encounters same problem :happy:

also remember to backup all the bookmarks and stuff before uninstalling chrome browser. :happy:

Re: can't remove click to call from chrome

Much simpler solution (worked for me just now in W7): 1) Start Chrome 2) Go Chrome-Settings-Under the Bonnet-Background Apps 3) Clear the check-box "Continue running background apps when Google Chrome is closed" 4) Exit Chrome (all instances) 5) Try to uninstall Skype click-to-call again - now you should see NO MORE persistent "Close Chrome windows" messages again YAY!!!! 6) You check the background apps option once Skype to call is un-installed. And now further bit of advice: - Uninstall this version of Skype (such nasty app does not belong on anyone's machine now that it: a) stealth-installs Chrome extensions without even asking!!! b) inserting annoying ads that clobber your video call windows; c) probably does some spyware tricks you don't know about (hard to trust them now). - Go to oldapps.com and install a 1-2 year old version of Skype (make sure it's "sort-of" compatible) - NEVER UPDATE SKYPE AGAIN!!!!!!

Re: can't remove click to call from chrome

This annoying program (virus?) calle 'Click to Call' constantly causes my Chrome browser to crash. When I try to remove 'Click to Call' from Windows 7 OS using normal Control Panel/Program Uninstall, a window appears to asks me if I will allow the program to update. If I say 'no', nothing happens, ie it is not deleted. If I say 'yes', it seems to re-install the **bleep** thing I want to remove. This frustrates any attempt to remove without resorting to 'tricks' to outsmart it. What a terrible nuisance Skype has become.....I love the telephone, I hate its 'virus like' behavior.
