I am trying to reinstall skype that has crashed and since failed to start ever since. I try to uninstall skype using the windows uninstall programs. It starts goes about 99% then the progress bar goes backwards and then eventually disappears and thats it!
Now i did immense Google searches and everyone says to delete any folder that has "skype" in it. ok I delete ~users/appdata/..., registry keys using the program they recommend, but I cannot delete the folders in the "program files" folder!!!
I already used killbox, unlocker, cacls, takeown, disable User accounts, and trying to take full control through windows. I even booted into safe mode with admin cmd and tried to take control that way and it works but then when trying to delete the dir I get access denied!!!!
I am so angry at this point Im not sure what else to try. Anyone with help please!!!
Thats the problem I cannot take control of the rights to change it.
Like I said originally, I used CMD to "takeown" and "cacls" in safemode and using admin too. Something is screwy with this machine. I already scanned it for viruses and malware, even pulling the drive to scan and change the folder permissions too.
IDK anymore. Skype is slow on there response but at least they are trying to help.
