Sorry, I should have given more information, I have a Mac. Anything I’ve found online about deleting Skype is usually in reference to a PC.

Have you tried this solution?

Just drag it into your trash and empty trash. I imagine that it should work.

Thank you, Pandoraboxx! That worked!

And psuedonym, Skype won’t let you drag it to the trash. I tried.

It also adds a plist file in your user folder.
/Library/Preferences/com.skype.skype.plist

And here too.
/Library/Preferences/Macromedia/Flash\ Player/\#SharedObjects/NLS8L4U9/skype.com

That looks bad but it should be pretty obvious to find.

edit :: That should not be a link. Don’t click it. It is just the path to a file on a local machine.

@mollykm: Just out of curiosity, did you like the program when you used it, or did it give you problems on your Mac?
