    I have a folder located in program files. As well in program data. Also, a .dll in commom files. Also, 2 folders in the "appdata" section. Invasive bugger isn't it :eek:

    You can also setup your current install to run "portable" and then uninstall from your computer if you wish ;)

    Running Vista32

    C: Program Files/Skype
    C: Program Files/Common Files/Skype/Skype4COM.dll
    C: Program Data/Skype

    There is a portable version. If you have an existing installation, there is a program that will take your existing settings and installation and make them into a portable version. I will edit this post when i locate the links again and provide them for you.
