Uninstalling EasyBits & Other Add-ons in Skype

skype_1Blog Technical has an item about removing an unasked for and unwanted Skype add-on named EasyBits.

[Update] Skype installs EasyBits Go CrapWare on your systems without users’ prior knowledge

My recollection is that there are a bunch of add-ons that can be declined when installing Skype. However, that aside, the Blog Technical articles goes on to provide instructions for removing this particularly sticky add-on. The first step is to remove it from Skype itself. I had to scan the Skype for Windows window for a minute or so before I finally saw the link in small type at the bottom of the window. You can see it in the screenshot to the the left.

I did not see EasyBits in the add-ons list for Skype on my PC. However, if you do, it would be somewhere in the list of software that has access to Skype’s API Access Control. You can see what my list looks like in the second screenshot here.
