uninstall skype fully remove logo

I tried uninstalling Skype which completed successfully but it was still installed on the computer so therefore I could not update to a later version of Skype.

 

In the end I installed the Skype Portable version 7.2.0.103 and this allowed me to use Skype again. I installed it on my PC and it can also be installed on a USB drive if required.

Download Link:

Skype Portable Version 7.2.0.103 (Allows you to install on PC or on USB Dongle)

 

I tried the following steps and still had no luck. They may work for you so have kept the details noted below:

I uninstalled Skype by going to the following on Windows 7:

Start > Control Panel > Programs & Features > Then clicking on Skype and clicking the “Uninstall/Change” button and choosing uninstall.

I completed this step and Skype was no longer appearing on the Programs & Features list but it was still installed.

I then had to do the following:

First, uninstall Skype again then have a look in C:\Users>{yourname}>AppData for any Skype folders which might be clinging on to settings you want to bin. Also, hit Windows key and R together then type regedit into the Open box an hit Enter. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>Software>Skype and delete the entire key then click Edit and Find, type in Skype and delete any further references you find by hitting Function 3 to find the next one every time. Leave the Registry by the File menu Exit and restart the computer twice. That should do it

If you try to install a newer Skype version and get this error message:

Installing Skype failed; code 1638

After spending hours on attempting to get this to work I gave up as it was not a high priority for me when Skype Portable works fine.

CSS Cascading Style Sheet

I was having problems aligning data inside a div container but I could not see what was causing this issue.

I originally thought it was to do with padding, margins and then div alignments and then came up with this useful code to help fault find my divs.

Paste the following code into the div tag in your HTML page:

style=”display:inline-block; border: 3px solid purple;

This will show a bright border for the DIV so you can more easily fault find any problems.

Enjoy
