I find it very annoying that Scype has suddenly synced my address book with scype. I couldn't find anything on the Scype site that told me how to unsync my addresss book from Scype. In a Scype forum, there were instructions to go to Scype general preferences and untick the box but I can't find Scype general preferences. I am using XP.

You'll find Skype's Preferences in the dropdown menu when you click on Skype at the top of your monitor's screen near the left edge. Hopefully that helps, beyond that I'd have to ask my kid. Lol.

Unfortunately I don't see preferences in the drop down menu under Skype nor under the Skype logo. I'm also finding that all emails that come to me with phone numbers have been converted to scype links. I find that very invasive. I may have to uninstall Scype to get rid of this nonsense.

I find this extremely annoying but Skype has taken over my whole system and has changed all my phone numbers to skype links in my address book and in emails. I can't find a way to unsycn from my computer other than uninstalling the program.
