+ - Skype forces Skype Home pop-ups despite complaints->

Every time a user starts Skype or their internet connection resets this screen pops-up and occupies most of the screen, and it cannot be disabled. If you happen to have a poor or variable internet connection, this can be hundreds of times a day. The issue affects both paying and non-paying users alike, and also impacts the so-called "Professional" version.

The complaints are now so common that it shows up as a link in the first hit for "Skype Home" on Google, yet Skype remains utterly silent on the issue."

The solution of this problem is trivial and is left as an exercise for the reader.
