The location has changed to: Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\PackagedCom\Package\Microsoft.SkypeApp_15.61.87.0_x86__kzf8qxf38zg5c\Class\{776DBC8D-7347-478C-8D71-791E12EF49D8} Manually delete the DllPath value in the Registry Editor.

One way is to delete DllPath under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\PackagedCom\Package\Microsoft.SkypeApp_15.61.100.0_x86__kzf8qxf38zg5c\Class\{776DBC8D-7347-478C-8D71-791E12EF49D8} However updates to the app will probably restore this.

In the registry, you go into HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, Folder, and then shell. Here you create a new key by right-clicking on shell and going to new then Key. Name it what ever you want.
