    Skype for Business

    For anyone who is having trouble keeping Skype for Business from opening, I have found one way to correct problem. Go to file manager and click on C:\Program Data\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Microsoft Office 2013 and delete the shortcut for Skype.

    In the Office 2013 folder, there is a folder called Office 2013 Tools. In this folder there is a shortcut to Skype for Business Recording Manager. This didn't cause any problems for me but you might want to delete this shortcut also.

    Surely this only removes the shortcut?

    First let it run one more time, click the settings (gear) icon, and turn off the option to run on Windows startup.

    Tried that numerous times and it doesn't work. Something in Office 2013 is directing it to start since this only happens after an Office update. If you check the properties on the program, it starts from the shortcut I deleted. I'm sure the problem will reoccur with the next Office update.

    Is it listed in the startup tab in "msconfig"?
