Nice, huh?! But why such negativity? Come on.



If Skype is to be trusted Tony Bates is The CEO. I quote: " I’m Skype’s CEO. I’m responsible for overseeing the company’s direction and strategy and am ultimately responsible for its performance."



If you do not like the direction and strategy of Skype, that's the guy.

There is the way, very simple and fast. Download K I L L S K Y P E H O M E, you coul find it in Google. Leave your account and password in Skype, then close it, then open this Kill, and Skype could not open Home anymore.

Wtf, that is all you ever write. Are you some kind of spambot? What is it with you and Tony Bates?

This is what it says:

 

Hey, it's the latest "hack" out there. Try following, it should work:
1. Close Skype
2. Go to c:\users\YOUR USER NAME\AppData\roaming\skype\shared_dynco
3. Open file dc.db in notepad,delete its content, save and close
4. In dc.db file properties set it up to read-only and confirm
5. Return a folder back and go to shared_httpfe
6. Repeat steps 3 and 4 in file queue.db
That's all. One annoying thing in your life down, hundreds to go 

 

I just tried it, works like a charm ... (version 5.3.0.120)

 

I was honestly 10 seconds away from uninstalling skype !!!

Please, Skype devs, realize this is not the right path to be walking !!!

After version 4.2, Skype became malware, first turning into a Trojan, and then forcing adware. So go to a site called OldApps and download Skype 4.2. Then disable automatic updates. That should take care of the home window problem.
