Windows 7: Problem with Skype uninstallation

Problem with Skype uninstallation

Good day.
I just recently got a toshiba satellite equipped with windows 7, and i've been using it rather frequently. I don't have many programs on it, i transferred all my music and files to it through network so i don't have to download them and risk getting viruses. I periodically do search for spyware and maleware and virus and nothing has come up. Altough, i wanted to play a game i could never play on my desktop so i installed it. It installed fine and once i went to play it, it told me to restart. so i did and it asked again, so i looked up and someone said i could use this program that came with Windows 7 and it changed a setting to xp. that aswell didn't work. so i uninstalled the game and it unistalled fine. later on, i froze and i turned off the computer. so i turned it back on and it asked me if i wanted to do a restore so i did, after the restore it reinstalled my game back, i tried unistalling it and it said setup.exe has stopped working, would you like to check online for a solution online or close the program. The same thing happened when i did a restore shortly after i got the computer and it wouldn't let me uninstall skpye, when it let uninstall it before the restore.
Does anybody have any idea on what is going wrong, and how i could fix it?

thanks alot!

Im not sure what error you are getting, but try using "Absolute Uninstaller", it'll remove your program, and all traces of it (unlike windows uninstaller). its perfectly safe to use.. link: Absolute Uninstaller
