Nothing. The only entries with uninstall in the context menus are msi files in my program data folder. Clicking uninstall on those brings up "this action is only valid for products that are currently installed'. Those must be for the previous installation of skype.

Also, when I installed portable, it kept saying invalid directory when I tried to install to program files or program files x86. It only installed to the root C:/ folder.

I'd already uninstalled skype full version. I'm trying to find a way to uninstall skype portable.

Yeah, it shows files I was already able to find in the skype portable folder. There's no uninstall function though, at least that I can find.

The 'delete' option is 3 from the bottom in both your images.

With all due respect, your messages were a bit short and cryptic. I thought I was looking for 'uninstall'. I always thought delete just got rid of the files but not registry entries. Thanks though, I'll just delete them.
