uninstalling the skype toolbar

Novel Tourist

I was having problems with my computer so I attempted to uninstall SKYPE and reload it later. I was able to unload the main program but not the toolbar. The computer wouldn't remove it. How do I uninstall the toolbar?

When I try to uninstall the Skype Toolbars app, I get the following message:

 

"Please close all open Chrome windows before continuing." 

 

However, I don't have any Chrome windows open.  I don't regularly use Chrome.

 

How do I bypass this and/or how do I manually uninstall the Skype Toolbars app

I had the same problem when trying to install Skype

What a nightmare!!!!!!!!!!!

And what's with the weird cursor turning into a location cursor?

Oh and where is the feedback option after you uninstall and get directed to the "sorry to see you go...we're here to help" webpage!

Help - i don't think they know what that word means!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

I got around the problem by uninstalling Chrome. : (
But it works.

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.

Problem solved:
When this comes, you have to open the task manager and close the process of google chrome.exe, then it works and google chrome works afterwards like before
