Skype: Remove Skype Links from Web Browser

When you browse the web, Skype will locate phone numbers and offer to let you call the phones through Skype.  You have two options to disable this:

1)  Uninstall "Skype Toolbar" from Add/Remove Programs.

2)  In Skype, go to Tools > Options > Advanced and uncheck the boxes "Use Skype to call callto: links on the web" and "Automatically start Extras".

I recommend just getting rid of the toolbar, which often are culprits when web browsers crash.
