Annoying, unwanted Skype pop-up!

Recommended Posts

Annoying, unwanted Skype for business window keeps popping up at start-up. Not sure where it came from and I can't find where it is hiding to get rid of it? Ideas?? :mad:

Which os?

I notice on Windows 10 if you bring up task manager (ctl alt del and click on task manager) it has a tab for "startup" that lists a bunch of stuff that (seems like) runs at startup.   Easy place to look...

Otherwise perhaps something like spybot-S&D or malware bytes might be worth a try. 

If skype is installed on your computer you could uninstall it and see if the pop up goes away.   Could be something it does as it starts.

Right click and task manager is there...at least on my Windows 10. Shortcut is also on bottom lower right menu bar...

 

 I had the same thing for a bit too...but just on this goofy site. Sure seems to be a whale of a lot of that on here for some reason. I run Malware bites, too.

Thanks guys. Yeah I've been all over, Ran Malware bites nothing. Can't find it in Undelete listed. Was on Manage Add-on's but I could not do anything with it.  Not showing on All programs list?  It's a Sign-on page that comes up at start up but I don't need or want to use it. So need to find out how to delete the popup?  Auug! :angry:

At start up of what?  The browser or the computer?   I thought it was computer but maybe browser?  

 

 

Good point, the computer first thing.  Oh and it's Windows 7

Do you have skype installed on the computer?

any version?

 

If I look at the Uninstall or change programs list it is not showing. If I go to manage your internet explore add-ons it is showing under Microsoft Corp File date as of April 12 2016? But all I can do is Enable or Disable it from there?

May have appeared with your Windows auto-update as pre-installed bloatware. I got 3 of those for skype on my new windows 10 updates from Microsoft. I just right-clicked and hit "delete these"....may not be same on yours. Since I did that, no more Skype hype...

I also have 3 listings for it but they are shaded out and I can't seem to do anything with them? Not sure if I have to sign on for it then delete once it's active maybe? Sure hate being made to do that! :angry:

Click on the round circle in the lower left and in the search type msconfig and hit enter. Go to the start up tab and see if you see skype and disable it.

Jim looked though them all. It's not showing on the lists. Everything on the lists shows a date of 2014 when we bought the PC.

Man it's seem like you guys are giving some good edvice just not sure what this thing is hiding or can be deleted.  Again, as Del asked. It comes up on the screen and icons on the bottom tool bar right when the PC is trued on and before I hit Goggle search.

Hmm, I looked at my PC.  I have skype installed, but it doesn't show up in the startup list but does in the list of running processes.  

For what that is worth.

    • I’d say it depends on how fast we want results and what the public will tolerate.  I do think a closure during their most vulnerable time is worth serious consideration.  We close the season for other fish for the same reason.  Now we’re realizing the never ending supply of quality panfish does really have an end.   It’s really going to be up to us to understand and accept the facts about how we affect the fisheries.  Getting this information out there and talking with each other is a big help.  I personally know several people who have changed their view on filling the live well or bucket with the most and biggest panfish they can to self imposed limits.  But I also know several people who are still proud as can be to bring home that pile of upper end fish, and worse yet making several repeat trips and bringing others with to do the same.  It’s hard to tell friends what their doing isn’t helpful.   One group of people can substantially fish down smaller lakes in 1-3 years and they’re fine with that.  On to the next lake.  I literally heard that just yesterday.  The limit was dropped on that particular lake to 5 this spring and that has curbed the number of trips they’ve been taking out there.  To me, it doesn’t get to be any clearer than that.   Minky, your practice sounds like what we need to get that 10% group of takers to adopt.
    • Wanderer, any ideas? Would the reduced limit and one over 9 or 10 inches be enough? Should there be a short season closure in the late winter / early spring?  Only catch and release in May and June. I love catching them, eating a few and releasing the rest.
    • here is a new idea to try:  
    • I would have to say that Wanderer is the biggest turkey so he gets my vote. 😀
    • I was out at a local lake last night and found the gills on beds with a few crappies mixed in.  I was learning the lake and planned on keeping moving and targeting bass but couldn’t resist pulling a few pannies in.  As always it was fun but I didn’t keep any and ran into several beds. They were topping out at a solid 8 inches on the board.   As I moved along I could see someone down the line, I thought maybe he was fishing bass also but he didn’t move until I got within about 75 yards.  When I got to the spot he was fishing there was another set of beds but I couldn’t see a fish on them.  Threw my bait in and didn’t get bit.     I’ve been that guy before but I’ve seen that scenario play out too many times to be OK with it anymore.  I know the panfish get hammered all winter and that’s probably putting the biggest hurt on the population but stripping the beds is something we really need to curb IMO.
    • Yes - absolutely thank you to Borch for running this again!   And thanks to everyone who entered!  Having the contest and getting some encouragement helped me get more back in tune to the spring turkey season than I have been lately.  And learn the lesson (again) to not under estimate what’s available and what can happen for anyone.
    • Yes- a cheap go pro knock off. 
    • Congrats Wanderer!  Thanks once again Borch for doing this. 
    • If I could only keep 5 or 10 sunnies this size (around 7 1/2) for the increased chance to catch & release 10+ inch sunnies it would be worth it!
    • Congrats Wanderer!  Shoot Rick a PM to make arrangements for your prize.     Thanks everyone!  It was a challenging but fun season.
