Automatic Skype Update

Today Microsoft (mistakenly) sent out an update for the communication software Skype to all windows machines. Currently, the Skype program installs on Windows machines whether a previous version of Skype was installed on the machine or not.

If you use Skype then you do not have to take any action.

If you do not use Skype then you can ignore the installation for now. If you go to the systray and right click on the Skype icon, you can quit the program.

We are waiting on Microsoft and Campus ITS to notify us of what, if any, action they will be taking to resolve this issue. As soon as we know the details from Microsoft or ITS, we'll pass them on to you.
