January 4th, 2015 by Cyborgmatt

Hey Skype ( ° ͜ʖ͡°)╭∩╮

You may have fallen victim to the latest Skype update which has unfortunately been able to make the software even worse than before. This guide will help you restoring the old version and block Skype from ever updating again.

The Guide

1. Uninstall the current version of Skype from the Program and Features list accessed via the control panel.
