You can download an installer for pervious versions of Skype here:

 

http://www.filehippo.com/download_skype/

 

The last version that had an option to turn off automatic updates was 4.2.0.187...if memory serves me.

I have gone to that hippo website and my protection software indicates the website is unsafe for my computer. Does Skype have a way to do this?

Re: how to back to previous version of skype?

No, Skype doesn't endorse going back to older versions, especially as far back as v4.

 

I supposed there's some possiblity that hippo might have some unsafe links but I've used a number of installers from that site and never had a problem.  I've also recommended to dozens of others and nobody has every had a malware type problem from using hippo.

 

It sounds to me like whatever a/v you're using is giving you a false positive.  You could try http://www.oldapps.com/skype.php  to see if that's any better.   If not...I'm out of ideas.

[ Edited ]

I used  http://www.oldapps.com/skype.php  to rollback to 5.3.0.120 last night as I dislike the latest version of Skype intensely - particularly the changes to the video call user interface and toolbar.  The rollback worked fine and I've now escaped back to a vastly better version of Skype!

 

Whay can't the geeks at Skype learn NOT to fiddle with things which don't need 'improving'?

Re: how to back to previous version of skype?

I had to uninstall the Newer version of Skype 5.10.0.114 because I was unable to add or change a Metacafe and Dailymotion video for my mood. I now am back to the Older version of Skype 5.1.0.104, which does support the Metacafe and Dailymotion video function. Surely, the Newer version should have the function, where you can add and remove Metacafe or Dailymotion mood videos and more? Please advise. Thanks, GTM:wink:
