Thank you.

The machine has ESET NOD32 installed with AV and anti-malware/spyware option.  Looks like this one went through somehow.

Anyone know how to remove that?

It sounds as if this is a Skype message you have received which is trying to get you to click on a link. That doesn't mean you are infected.

According to this post:

http://bluescreensolutions.blogspot.com/2010/01/spam-from-skype.html

you can stop receiving such messages by doing the following:

1.  In Skype, go to Tools > Options.  
 
2.  Click on "Privacy"
 
3.  Select "Only allow people in my Contact list to contact me.  

Good luck!!!
