Hi.
I have a Bluetooth and Skype icon appear in my system tray today. Whatever i do they will not go away.
I have right clicked/close or exit. That doesn't work, they just just reappear after about 10 seconds and Skype
login window comes up on the desktop. I have ended the processes in task manager but they reappear. I am sure
i have had this before but i can't remember how i got rid of them. They are not listed in the startup programs.
I had to download Nokia pc suite today to update my phone, i think this may have something to do with it but because
i was stressing about my phone being broken i failed to see whether the icons were there before i d/loaded Nokia PC suite.
I am running Windows XP SP3.
Oh, and i tried closing Bluetooth through Network connections menu. This is driving me nuts :help:

Not use with Skype but just one suggestion, did you check in the options/preferences of Skype if you have a choice to have it start as soon as an internet connection is detected.
