Why I deleted Skype from my computer

I’ve been a Google Chrome user for a long time.

Google is my search engine, and I have no desire to use any other search engine.

A few months ago I got this wild and crazy idea to use Skype.

So I downloaded Skype, and things went okay for awhile.

Then, all of a sudden one day, I signed on to Google and Yahoo came up as my start page, with Bing as my search engine.

So I went to my Google chrome settings, and deleted Yahoo and Bing from my start up page.

After doing some online research, I found that Skype downloads could make this happen, so I deleted Skype and reinstalled it, being careful to uncheck the options for Yahoo to be my start page and Bing my search engine.

Guess what, sports fans?

It happened again, maybe the third or fourth time I signed on to Google.

So here’s the deal, Yahoo and Microsoft: I’ve got nothing but love for both of you.

But I do not want Yahoo to be my start up page, and I do not want Bing to be my search engine.

With respect, Microsoft, please take Skype and stick it where the sun don’t shine!

Thank you!
