    Hi,

    Check wheather the program is in use when you are trying to uninstall it.

    Click "Task Manager" once you evoked it by clicking on an empty space on the Taskbar, and check the running processes.

    Close process one by one and finally close Task Manager.

    Then ControlPanel>Programs>Skype>Uninstall will be the process to uninstall the program.
    You can also uninstall the program using "Ccleaner" utility available free on the net.

    Reinstall next after downloading from the net.

    Thanks.

    1. Close Skype and make sure that Skype is no longer running.
    2. If you need to, save your personal information. Your contacts, purchases and account information are stored on our servers, but other personal files such as chat messages, voice messages and video snapshots taken during video calls, are only saved on your computer. To keep this personal information, you need to make a copy of it:
      1. On Vista or Windows 7: Click Start, type run and press Enter.
        On XP: Click Start and then Run...
      2. Type %appdata%\skype and click OK.
      3. Copy the Pictures folder and the folder with your Skype Name to another location, such as your desktop.
    3. Uninstall Skype.
      1. On Vista or Windows 7: Click Start, type run and press Enter.
        On XP: Click Start and then Run...
      2. Type appwiz.cpl and click OK.
      3. Right-click Skype in the list that appears and select Remove or Uninstall.
    4. Delete the Skype application folder:
      1. On Vista and Windows 7: Click Start, type run and press Enter.
        On XP: Click Start and then Run...
      2. Type %appdata% and click OK.
      3. Delete the Skype folder.
    5. Make sure that the Skype program folder has been deleted:
      1. Go to C:\Program Files.
      2. Delete the Skype folder and the SkypePM folder
