Currently experiencing issues with Skype 8+ wanting to auto update for our users.
We have tried the method of creating a logon script to delete the 'Skype-Setup.exe' application and then create a folder named 'Skype-Setup.exe' but this hasn't worked as anticipated, as some users are still getting the prompts for admin credentials to install/update.
The odd thing is that the prompt seems to be two-factor authentication as when the UAC prompt initially pops up, it only accepts admin credentials (as expected), but then the odd thing is that a second UAC prompt appears after this and only accepts the credentials of the current local user.
Has anyone had similar experiences?
I was thinking about trying the following: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/182a2ff5-7307-42b9-a825-6f83a850c165/stop-skype-automatic-updates?forum=sfbfr
Has anyone else who has experienced this problem tried this?
