I want to give a computer to a friend.
I removed Skype using the control panel (remove programs).

When he downloads Skype, it automatically goes to my account.

Any way to avoid this?

You need to remove the configuration file for Skype from your computer.

Remove Skype completely with Revo Uninstaller. After uninstalling, it will scan for and remove all traces of Skype from your system.
