- TL;DR Summary
- The automatic update for Skype will not proceed because supposedly programs are running that it needs shut, but there are no programs listed as running in Task Manager.
Now and then I get the automatic update question "Do you want [Skype] to make changes on your computer"; clicking "yes" gives me something like (this is not an exact quote" "Skype cannot proceed because it cannot close all applications relevant for it setup" with the options : retry, abort, or ignore. I looked in Task Manager "Control-Alt-Delete", and it said that no programs were running. Retry doesn't change anything. Once I tried "ignore", and the computer crashed. So since then I press "abort". Within a day or so, the automatic update reappears. Advice? Please note that I am not a programmer. Should I discard and reload Skype, or what? Thanks.
