    Hello,

    when I install new Skype version, there are no more those checkboxes, where person can uncheck:

    1. Setting MSN as Homepage
    2. Setting Bing as Search Engine

    ...instead the setup adds those two automatically to IE, Chrome, FF and Safari... so I have to erase them manually.
    (It is so probably, because in the past somebody confirmed those two options.)

    Is here anybody skilled with some REG file or information to reset this back?

    Thanks...

    Have you tried to uninstall and reinstall everything? And be sure to erase everything even in the regedit.

    Yes, un- and reinstalling Skype will correct it, but I don't want to do that on cca 15 PCs. :))
