Never use CCleaner on PCs more modern than XP.

How to uninstall Skype;

Close Skype.
Right-click the Skype icon in the system tray (at the bottom right of the screen).
Choose Quit.
Save your personal information (if required).

To keep this personal information, you need to make a copy of it.
On your keyboard, press the Windows key  and R at the same time. The Run window opens.
Type %appdata%\skype and click OK.
Copy the Pictures folder and the folder with your Skype name to another location, such as your desktop.

What is your OS? If it is Windows 8.x or above, skype is probably a crapp which is already included with the OS, rather than a real program. The crapps don't show up in programs and features of the control panel.

If you are using Windows 8.x or 10, just right click on the tile and select "Uninstall" or whatever it is called in your OS.
This doesn't really complete the crapp, it only does that for the current user account, so if there are other accounts, you need to repeat this for those as well.

Saying "skype is probably a crapp which is already included with the OS, rather than a real program. The crapps don't show up in programs and features of the control panel."
is not a valid solution to the QA question.

Sorry for the typing mistake ... Left out "older versions of CCleaner"
Also my "CCleaner comment" was no part of my solution:

"How to uninstall Skype;"


"Skype" is still more popular and used than "LINE"
WhatsApp Messenger is rated as No. 1
Skype is rated as No. 6
LINE is rated as No. 7
LINE was just listed on NY and Tokyo stock exchange and exceeded IPO value by about 27%.

Recommending accepting a solution that states:
 "skype is probably a crapp which is already included with the OS, rather than a real program. The crapps don't show up in programs and features of the control panel."

In my opinion is not a valid solution to the QA question.
