Windows 7: skype update listed in Windows Update

10 Sep 2012   #11

Microsoft Windows 8.1 Professional

Yesterday I reinstalled windows for a friend who got hit by a nasty rootkit leaving the computer useless, after wiping the disk with 0's, and performing the clean install, windows update among the 100+ updates suggested to install Skype...go figure.

Thank you again so much Noel and please accept my sincere apologies for being a jerk. I've just checked my list of installed programs in Control Panel, and found out that it's not there. Because I couldn't remember un-installing it except saying that I will, I tried looking for that update to unhide it without even the slightest bit of thought to check first whether or not it is still sitting in programs.

Now I believe I should leave IT-socializing/scavenging to home because dealing with it while at work seemed to mess up my head.

Heaps of thanks again and God Bless,

It's easy to get lost in the maze - I do it every day! - so don't worry about it.

Good luck!
