How cai i remove a message that i wrote to afriend at skype 1day ago?


You cannot delete or edit any chat message sent, even if it has NOT been delivered yet after 1 hour from the time the chat message was created, the only exception to this is if the message is for/sent to/trying to be sent to a multi-chat ("A chat that has more than 2 people in it") and you are the creator of that multi-chat.

How to delete messages


Many instant message programs are set, by default, to save your chat history.
This might not be a desirable feature for people who share a computer with others since it could pose a security threat.
Delete the folder in which the history is saved or delete the chat history within the instant message program.
Popular instant messenger programs, such as Yahoo!, Windows Live and Skype, simplify the process of clearing message archives.

Delete archived messages in Yahoo! Messenger.
Open Yahoo! Messenger.
Click on "Messenger" on the toolbar and select "Preferences."
Click "Clear Archive Now" to delete your chat.
Clear chat history in Windows Live Messenger.
Open the program and click the first icon from the right at the top of the box.
This is the "Show Menu" icon. Highlight "File" and click "View Message History."
Select a contact from your list to view messages from or to that contact.
Click "OK."
Click "Delete History" at the top of the "Message History" window.


Erase your conversation history in Skype.
Launch the program and click on "Privacy Settings."
Click the "Clear History" button under the "Keep History For" section.
This will delete all saved conversations.

Clean the message archives in Google Talk.
Click "Settings" on the toolbar and select "Chat" from the list of options.
Click the "Don't Save" option and click "OK."

Delete all message archives with an application.
Programs such as Cyber Scrub, WinClear and ParetoLogic Privacy Controls will delete the history from any instant messaging program, as well as tracking data from your Internet activity. Many of these programs are available for download.

I couldnt sign in its shows I/O error how can i solve the problem


To resolve this problem, please make sure that you are using the latest version of Skype.
However, if the same error happens again, follow these steps:
  1. Quit Skype. If you can see the Skype icon in the taskbar (at the bottom right of your screen), right-click it and select Quit. If you cannot see the Skype icon, use Task Manager to close Skype: press Ctrl+Alt+Delete and click Start Task Manager. In the Applications tab, select Skype and click End Task.
  2. Make sure that you can see hidden files.
    On Windows XP:
    1. In Windows Explorer, go to Tools > Folder Options.
    2. Click the View tab.
    3. Under Hidden files and folders, tick Show hidden files and folders, and then click OK.
    On Windows Vista / Windows 7:
    1. Click Start > Control Panel > Appearance and Personalization > Folder Options.
    2. Click the View tab.
    3. Under Advanced settings, tick Show hidden files and folders, and then click OK.
  3. In Windows Explorer, navigate to the following folder:
    On Windows XP:
    • C:\Documents and Settings\\ApplicationData\Skype
    WindowsVista / Windows 7:
    • C:\Users\\AppData\Roaming\Skype
    Where is your Windows user name.
  4. Locate the folder with the same name as your Skype Name and delete it.
    This will delete your chat history. To save your chat history, copy all the .dbb files and the 'chatsync' folder to another location. You will be able to transfer them back (described in step 6, below). Please note that we cannot guarantee your entire chat history will be restored.
  5. Restart Skype and sign in with your Skype Name and password. If you forget your password, these instructions tell you what to do.
  6. The folder you have deleted will be recreated. If you saved your chat history files (described in step 4, above) transfer them back into the folder with the same name as your Skype name.
If you still have problems, please contact Skype Customer Service.
