Hey, I have the same damn problem! It has nothing to do with the contacts
as it's ME that I'm trying to delete. Or prior me's as the case may be.

How the hell do we delete prior login names from the Skype login window?

I don't want my kids finding the names I use but the damn thing shows them
up there for the whole world to see. Geeeeezus!

Isnt' there a way to delete these prior login names?

Haven't tried it, 'cause I just have one user, but you might look at:

C:\Documents and Settings\_YOUR_PC_USER_NAME_\Application Data\Skype

In there it appears there are directories for each account. And a file named
shared.xml whose contents may be used to put names in the list.

I'd simply move the account directories somewhere else and remove references to
them from shared.xml and see what happens. Of course, this would be done when
Skype was fully shut down!

If you are bothered about other users of the same machine viewing personal
information then the simple, clean solution would be simply to get another
machine for your own personal use (lock down/ lock away whilst absent from site)

Go into REGEDIT on your computer and create this registry key:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Skype\Phone]
"MemoryOnly"=dword:00000001

Hope this helps.

So I guess the deletion of the named folder in the Application Data /
Skype folder does the trick once, but editing the HKEY will take out
the listing of names permanently? Thanks!

I deleted the folder and am happy now, no need to do the registry bit.

Hey, I have the same damn problem! It has nothing to do with the
contacts
as it's XP P that I'm trying to delete. Or prior me's as the case may
be.

How the hell do we delete prior login names from the Skype login
window?
