    I got a good suggestion from Skype community and it solved the problem. I had the jv16 Macecraft tools installed and apparently, that program has its own set of startups and Skype was one of them. So that was deleted and it solved the problem. Thanks to all

    Glad you finally sorted this out and posted your results. CCleaner does not have this problem. Please mark topic "Solved" so others can think to look at 3rd party startup software as a solution to this problem. Thanks.

    Find SkypeUpdate / Right Click / Properties and check Startup Type. If Automatic change to Manual.

    Yes, that is how to change a run setting but Manual SkypeUpdate does not affect Program start. My SkypeUpdate is set to Automatic and Skype does not auto-start at boot hence it reads 'Stopped' under Task Manager Service tab.
    It turns out that another program was starting Skype. The jv16 Macecraft has a startup folder as well. When I cancelled this one, it took care of the problem. Thanks for all the suggestions
