To uninstall Skype for Windows:
  1. Close Skype.
    • Right-click the Skype icon in the system tray (at the bottom right of the screen).
    • Choose Quit.
  2. Save your personal information (if required). Your contacts, purchases and account information are stored on our servers, but other personal files such as chat messages, voicemail and snapshots taken during video calls, are only saved on your computer. To keep this personal information, you need to make a copy of it.
    • Vista and 7: Click Start, type run and press Enter.
      XP: Click Start and then Run...
    • Type %appdata%\skype and click OK.
    • Copy the Pictures folder and the folder with your Skype name to another location, such as your desktop.

WLan / broadcom hardware disappears


(Originally from BEBEJAZ)
Here's a quick fix for a HP DV6000 that can't connect to the

internet, no network adapter detected in device manager problem:

not long ago, i also experienced this problem
my "HP Pavilion DV6308NR" with Vista OS is not connecting to the

internet
and the network adapter is not found under device manager.
Even the HP Wireless Assistant is not working.
I turned it on but my laptop still says it's disabled.

after a month of turn off, wait for 5 minutes and plug again routine.
I decided to look into the system configuration and here's what I

did:

1. Restart PC
2. Enter "Setup" by pressing <F10> as soon as you see the HP logo

on you screen
3. Go to "System Configuration" by pressing the left button twice
4. Go to "Boot options" by pressing down button 4 times
5. Press Enter
6. Go to "Internal Network Adapter Boot" by pressing the the down

button 3 times, then check if its DISABLED (of which in my case

was)
7. Then press <F5 or F6> to ENABLE it.
8. Lastly, Press <F10> to Save and Exit, then Select YES.
9. After that, PC will continue its boot process and make sure

you're Wireless Assistant is switched on.

And Viola! I can connect to the internet again!
