Skype 5.5 Does Not Close With Windows 7 64bit RRS feed

  • Question

  • h

    I have Skype 5.5 installed and find that when I go to close Windows, I am left with a "1 program left to close" box which lists Skype. This often doesn't come up for a few minutes, so if you forget, you come back to find Windows still sitting there instead of closed down.

    This is crazy that I have to manually do this every time I want to exit what I thought was the operating system. If it is an OS, then when I tell it to close, it closes and should require no confirmation about programs still running. Being the OS, it should just close them.

    Does anyone know of a workaround, as I wish to be able to select shut down and have Windows 7 do just that? Skype seems to be the only one requiring the further confirmation

    cheers

  • hi Jiří

    Thanks for your reply, but there is no such thing as Skype 5.6 I have run update in Skpe and it tells me it is the latest. I then searched online and downloaded the latest from the Skype website. I installed it and it was still 5.5  I then searched specifically for Skye 5.6 and followed a link to download it and tried to install in. The popup message said the version I have is newer, so can only summise that 5.5 is currently the latest official release.

    To be honest, I do not think it is version specific, as it has always done it, but I am just getting tired of it. Windows 7 shouldn't have to ask for confirmation of a rogue program remaining open before closing down.

    Thanks for the reply anyway

    Regards
