I don't know exactly where to post this one since I have XP, MS7 and MSVista and they all do the same thing. It is really a Skype issue but I don't see where to post that either. Anyway, Skype has been pushing their latest version onto all my systems. I keep changing back to 4.2 but this time they were able to repush their new version. I have unchecked all their boxes for notifying me and updating but they still push it down. Is there any way to stop or block their obnoxiu=ous actions? 4.2 takes less space on the desktop and is better all around. Thanks.

On Win7, I tried regedit->create Skype->Phone->DisableVersionchecking
and set it to 1. I'll see it it works:) Now to WinVista! Thanks!
