For several times I wrote in the Give Feedback area that, meanwhile I am working, a window with above message with the request if to stop or not jumps on the screen repetedly and, in spite of the kind of reply yes or not, it comes out again and all my work is stock. I asked how I could repair this issue, no reply at all. Should I pass to Google +?

I use Skype Click-to-Call all the time, and have never encountered these error messages.  Are you using the most recent version of Skype?  Please try turning this feature off; sign out of Skype, wait a minute or two, sign back in to Skype, and re-initializing the feature -- unless you do not wish to use it at all!

 

Here is how to find Click-to-Call in my Win7 PC version of Skype, as of today is 5.9.0.123 : Starting at your Contacts list,

Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> Advanced Settings -> un-check Use Skypeto call to links on the web

I am having the same thing, except that when this is happening my computer freezes until I tell the question to shut off the unresponsive plug-in. I also get (one start-up of the computer) this: The procedure entry point NtAlpcSnedwaitreceive Point could not be located in the dynamic link library ntdll.dll.

Can anyone help an idiot try to work through these issues?

I have disabled my Skype Click to Call plug in and not had any problems since .....

 

Control panel

Internet Options

Programs Tab across the top

Manage Add ons box at the bottom

Click to highlight Skype Click to Call and then click diable in the settings section underneath on the left

Close and re-start computer.

Hopefully this should fix the problem. Hope it helps

I've had the same problem.  For those using Google Chrome, if you click the wrench icon at the end of the url bar, go down to tools, and select extensions, you should see the click to call extension.  Check the box that says enabled - you'll see it change to disabled.  I haven't restarted my computer yet, but hopefully won't have to.

Dear Readers,

 

One of our Community Super Users enlightened me: in my browser, I can click on the blue S for Click to Call, and choose to turn off the phone number flagging or otherwise.  See the screen shot, below ...

 

 

Regards,

Elaine
