Hi there, I'm Tim and will be assisting you today. I have over 15 Years as an Engineer and have been with eBay, DoD and many others. I will do my VERY BEST to help you. If you like i can offer remote access and a call. In addition, with any positive rating I will support your question going forward for free.
I use to work for eBay when they owned Skype, and this was not the case. However they have recently been sold to Microsoft, and that would the reason for any odd behavior....but it should not be asking for daily/weekly updates....There should be a remember me check box when logging on, see if that helps. I use the new skype and am not prompted. I can remote in and take a look for you if you need it.
Let me know, and i'll be happy to remote in and make sure its being done right.
LIke i have already said, I can't diagnose this with out remote support...
