Hi,

I tried this and got an alert telling me that a later version of Skype is already installed.

In that case, try uninstalling Skype completely.
Afterwards, reboot, then install a new copy of Skype, and reboot again, then visit Windows Update and do a Scan for Updates - install any found.
With luck that will kick it into submission

That seems to have done the trick.

Many thanks for your patience and help.

Glad that worked - I was about out of ideas otherwise!

Good luck.
