Hi experts,

Is there any way to remove the default Skype installation which comes with windoews 8.1?

Since today i.m having problems with skype for desktop and i think that is a conflict problem. I dont wanna use skype for windows 8.1 but skype for desktop.

Thank you in advance for a solution.

Raul M.
