Preferred Solution: How do I uninstall Skype for Business?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Note the following: " If you don't see Skype for Business listed, then you're using a version that's integrated with other Office 365 apps. The only way to uninstall it is to remove all of Office from your computer."

Hi Geeks,


I was using skype for business which I installed separately after installing Microsoft office package after some days.

After installing skype for <g class="gr_ gr_34 gr-alert gr_gramm gr_run_anim Style multiReplace" data-gr-id="34" id="34">business ,</g> I found that the addon <g class="gr_ gr_32 gr-alert gr_gramm gr_run_anim

the outlook mail client.

I tried finding addon of skype for business to the outlook, but it is very difficult to find the addon.

I found a skype plugin in that web named with the plugin for outlook, I installed that but somehow the outlook not <g class="gr_ gr_28 gr-alert gr_spell gr_run_anim ContextualSpelling multiReplace" data-gr-id="28" id="28">recognize</g>

<g class="gr_ gr_20 gr-alert gr_spell gr_run_anim ContextualSpelling ins-del multiReplace" data-gr-id="20" id="20">Atlast</g> I installed skype along with Microsoft package in a new desktop in Windows 10 same OS, but
now the addon is available.

Please explain why the addon is not involved in the outlook in late installation.

I'm having a Skype job interview next. The guy interviewing me is using Skype for Business. I have Skype installed on my home computer but not the business kind, just regular Skype. The guy sent me an email link to click on which says "Join Skype Meeting" - I tried clicking on it just to see what happened -- even though it's not the day for the interview -- and I got these screen messages:

"How would you like to join your meeting? "Install and join with Skype meetings app (web)" -- "Join with Skype for Business (desktop")

I've never used Skype this way before -- I've always had someone Skype me in advance of the interview, ask to be added to my "contacts" list, then they Skyped me at the designated time and I had my Skype already open to receive.

What do I do? Do I click on his "Skype for Business (desktop) link? Do I first have to open my Skype program on my laptop or install something else?

This old Luddite is really worried about screwing my interview up. Any help is GREATLY appreciated?

Hi, I have several users that are experiencing audio issues when trying to use Skype for Business 2016.   The issue is that when they Skype call out to a contact their mic and speakers or just microphone will not work.   The microphone not working is the most common issue.   However, they can have a contact call them and their microphone and speakers will function normally.  Here are the steps that I've tried to correct the issue: Quick Repair of Office 2016.Full Repair of Office 2016.Full removal of all Office products and reinstall of Office 2016.Update to latest sound drivers Conexant ISST Audio -- this causes both microphone and speakers to not function at all.Revert sound drivers for Conexant ISST Audio to -- this allows for the user to be able to recieve Skype calls but not be able to make Skype calls.Full removal of all sound drivers - restart - allow Microsoft to reinstall drivers.None of the items above have fully corrected the issue and it appears to be a specific issue with the Conexant ISST Audio drivers used by HP. Any ideas on how to correct this issue? Thank you!

I bought a new Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon few days before. While overall it performs excellent, it keeps disconnecting from Skype for Business during calls. Atleast twice, it has disconnected me from skype during my screen sharing live calls. It doesnt happen with any of my other laptops on Windows and Mac so I dont think this case should be opened for Microsoft. The Wifi connection is stable during such examples. Looks like there could be an issue that must be resolved. Any suggestion please ? Best regards,Kailash

Hi Useless User and welcome to Tenforums.

You can disable Skype for Business from starting with Windows permanently, by opening Task Manager; under the Startup tab, select the app and click the Disable button.

Alternately, you can go to All Settings> System>Apps & features, highlight Skype Meetings App, and select Uninstall.

Hope that helps!

There is Skype for Business 2019 and there are SfB 2016 Basic clients. The problem is that missed calls are not displayed in the client's mail. Missed conversations are saved. Outgoing calls and answered ones too, but unanswered calls not.

If you go to the mobile client under the same account, then all calls are immediately displayed.

I tried different versions of the Office - it doesn't help.

Where to dig? UC is not deployed.
There is only one user who has Office 19 Pro with a built-in Skype client and everything is fine with him. Everyone else does not work for Office 13. MAPI and EWS status - OK

There was no unified messaging system and was not included, but I noticed that in the configuration of clients it does not work for whom - ExumEnabled - TRUE, and for the one working at the office 19 and ExumEnabled - FALSE

How to change this value? In Exchange, UM accounts are disabled
The ExumEnabled parameter shows FALSE when executing the GEt-CSUSer command

But the Skype Exum Enabled client configuration parameters are TRUE

We have started to find that we cannot make Skype calls with video from the integrated camera in Skype for Business on our 6th Gen laptops that are newly built. Every other application is able to use the camera but not Skype for Business, although, in the video settings for the app, it shows an image from the chosen camera. We have tried repairing and also reinstalling Microsoft office and the app individually, also tried different accounts. Installing different or updated drivers from the Lenovo Support website do not seem to make an impact either.

I have been having this problem for maybe 2-3 months now.
Back then, Skype started giving me a problem where it would freeze my computer every time I opened the program. This actually started happening when I was fixing something else on my computer. My "Public Folders" were appearing just as simple yellow folders. I did some googling on this problem and found a fix-it site that had me replace the desktop.ini files in each folder in order to make the "public folders" have the standard icons that they are supposed to have.
This was the website I used to do this: http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/172301-public-folder-icons-restore-default-icon.html
However...this is for Windows Vista, and I have windows 7...so I am not sure if I messed something up, but like I said, around this time is when my Skype stopped working.

So...my first thought was just to uninstall, and reinstall it. However, I ran into a bumpy road with this. I cannot get it to uninstall!
When I go to unistall it, it says that it cannot find the "skype.msi" file to continue the uninstallation.
I have searched online and found other people dealing with this problem.
I have tried deleting every possible file on my computer having to do with skype, but it still shows up on my uninstall list, as well as my start menu.

A:Can not uninstall Skype

Hello Bear,
The first thing you need to make sure is that when you uninstall Skype, does this application has been totally closed?  Then, try to uninstall it with administrator.
If it is still unavailable, you can try to delete the installation files directly with its storage path. That may be helpful.

Hello everyone. Recently I tired to update Skype and failed to do so as I got error 1603 and it said it failed to remove the older version of Skype. After receiving this error multiple times, I decided to try to manually uninstall Skype and then reinstall the latest version. However when trying to do so, I received this error message: 
"The installed product does not match the installation source(s). Until a matching source is provided or the installed product and source are synchronized, this action can not be performed."
I have never encountered this error before upon trying to uninstall something so I really have no idea what to do. If anyone can offer assistance with this I would greatly appreciate it!

You have to use the Office CD to uninstall all or part of its applications.

Insert the CD and choose "Add Remove Components"...or something along those lines.

Choose "Custom Install" when offered the choice.

When you get to the list of components, find the ones you want to get rid of, left click on the icon next to it and choose "Not available."

Once you've made all your selections, proceed with the "install."

Hey guys, I have a rather st**id problem.

I installed Windows 8.1 on my new lap top a few days ago (Thanks Superfly and popeye).

Then I wanted to make it look and function more like Windows 7, so I installed Classic Shell and got my Start button to look and function as it does on Windows 7 (and XP before it)

Well, today I decided to download skype, and I went to the download page and saw that apparently I already have skype on my machine, so I turned it on. Suddenly I was asked to input my lap top's entry password, and then after that to put my Microsoft information (Username, password)... Well, I didn't like that very much, I want the classical Skype...

So I googled, and the solution is simple, to uninstall skype as it is in Windows 8.1, and then to download and install skype, and problem solved.

Alright, but the instructions on uninstalling skype are for windows 8 platform, which I don't have now that the start button has been made to look like Windows 7...

Alright, I went to control panel -> programs, then to my computer -> program files, then to the start button -> all programs, and nowhere did I find skype in order to run the Uninstall.exe, or to remove from the control panel..

Then I googled how to revert to Windows 8.1 function from classic shell, and apparently people are having problems returning EVEN IF they Uninstall classic shell... and I don't want to get into another set of problems.

Now, this should be the easiest thing to solve, how did this g... Read more

Hi everyone,

I have tried everything under the sun to get my MS Office working (2010 Home & Business). This is the third time I have had such issues with it. The first two times it miraculously worked on it's own. This time it seems to be dead for good.

When I try and open office it just stays at the "starting" box and doesn't go any further. I am unable to open it via winword.exe either.

I am able to open it in safe mode, but when I try and save a file it just freezes my computer, same if I also try and close the program.

I have attempted a repair and an uninstall and neither work, they just get to half way and hang (for hours.) I have done a "clean boot" I have tried to restore my system to a point when MS was working but I get some 0x8007005 error saying a virus protection may be in the way. I disabled the virus scan and it still occurred. (I am using Avira Anti Virus)

Something else to note, I also have open office & PDF Complete and they are also freezing in the same manner as MS Office.

My question is; Does anyone else have some possible solutions for my problem or is a complete system over hall in the midst?

Thanks in advance for your help.

I have a person who fears his computer has been compromised, and he's using the "Norton Business Class" (his words, google told me it was Norton Business Suite) software to protect his system. Over the phone, he was able to tell me the firewall detected traffic to his computer after he thought he'd shut it off and gone to work.

I've never used the product, and I'm not finding documentation on how to use the software when I search the net. (I'm finding lots about the service, and standard information about what it includes, features, etc to sell the service. But no particular help documents or user guides.) Does anyone know how to pull the firewall logs from the software so he can send them to me for review?

I noticed that skype has send to all skype contacts a certain link, to one contact even multiply links.
this all happens on the same day: 17th december from 14:30 -14:39.
I haven't seen any spam send anymore after that.
Skype support told me to reset my password, I did, and to download safety scanner from microsoft. they proviced me with the link.
when I try to open the link, the browser cannot load the page, it is stuck in a loop:  sometimes I see a page, but just for a second or even less, then mostly white page, and browser keeps trying to load the page. and in chrome : a  little shield symbol on the right side of the address bar says that it's trying to load scripts from unauthenticated sources. this message dissappears very quickly.

The problem I told about, is on one laptop that has no antivirus. I did not yet checked the other laptop, if the microsoft page opens or not. but I do have bitdefender internet security (paid) installed on the second laptop.

I downloaded the safety scanner from microsoft from my other laptop without any issue.
copied it to a usb, put it on the problem laptop, a full scan and nothing found.
I realize I did had a antivirus paid version (kaspersky internet securuity) on the laptop, as I first said that it had no antivirus.
I only disabled it because it had problems running.
Now I enabled it, updated it and run a full scan. nothing found.
I don't know if skype is the cause and not a virus?  the skype workers told me that the cause could be anything (email, virus on computer).
I mostly use skype on iphone, and here I'm confused with what the skype workers said: one said that iphone can not be infected, so no need to check the iphone.
an other said: you can download an app from app store to scan for viruses, because it is possible that the virus is on the iphone.
This is really not clear anymore.

- very slow response (i.e. when I click RMB, the menu shows up in several seconds, and I expect to see it immideately),
- doesn't understand links to skype chat like skype:?chat&blob=blahblahblah, when I click it nothing happens.

I've also tried skype for desktop, it was even worse:
- when I changed online status to invisible (i've also tried with N/A), skype stopped to receive and send messages,
- when this or another error occurs, I try to kill skype process via task manager, TM then firstly says that skype is not responding (so i am trying to kill process), after that TM stops responding as well.
So when i've tried skype for desktop i had to reboot my laptop about 5 times in a day.

Now I've installed skype from Store back, but I still need to go to skype chat.

Could anyone please help me either make skype 5.x/6.x work on win8, or enter the chat which i need?

Here's my system: http://i.imgur.com/Fu65f57.png

Thanks in advance!

You can find 6.1 online with a quick google search, such as at http://www.filepuma.com/download/skype_6.1.0.129-2261/For even older versions: http://www.oldversion.com/windows/skype-5-9-0-123Don't have version 6.3 to verify the crash issue using the microsoft log in.
