McAfee and Skype issues

I'm a bit puzzled. My skype works fine and tells me it is up to date (I have auto updates on). But the McAfee total protection tells me that there is a skype update needing done that I have to do manually. Can anyone tell me how to stop this apparent clash somewhere in the McAfee protection? Should I take off the auto updates so that I do have to update manually?

Re: McAfee and Skype issues

Thanks, that seems to have come in ok. Why wasn't it registering beforehand? I did check the update option and it just said I was up to date. I'm keen to not be quite so ignorant in the future.

Re: McAfee and Skype issues

The latest 6.13 version is still not the recommended version and therefore does not appear in Check for Updates.
