Most of the time the fact that you are logged in to a site is kept on your computer in the form of a cookie so deleting your cookies should erase the fact that you may not have logged out correctly.
Unless someone else is using your account, in this case change your password to log in and contact their security section to make sure no one did something to get you in trouble.
Use Task Manager to see if skype shows up more than once, if it does then use task manager to end process on both and relaunch it clean again.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Did you check to see if you had Skype installed twice? If installed only once, try uninstalling and reinstalling. If that doesn't work, try downloading and installing AnVir Task Manager Free (you can find it with a websearch) Go to the startup tab and check for any Skype startup entrys (the IEhelper entry is OK) You can delete the entry by clicking Edit then Delete Entry. Hope this helps...

Start computer in safe mode. This will only let essential processes start. Then go to Control Panel and Programs and uninstall there. Once it is gone restart your system and make sure you do not see it in Task Manager, IF you do see it, then you have an infection masquerading as Skype. Use Malwarebytes to see if it can identify it and remove it. If you are clean or after you remove the problem, download a fresh copy (make sure that you go to their site and not somewhere else to download it) and install it.
I hope that this helps, let us know.
