I find it very annoying that Skype takes control of any number it thinks is a phone number in my browser window and then displays the skype setting and skype flag on there.  It annoying only displays part of the phone number and I then I have to check the properties to see the full number.

I cannot seem to find the setting anywhere to prevent Skype from controlling phone numbers on my internet browser sessions.  Any suggestions on how to switch this off?

Thanks.
