Remove Skype Preview from Windows 10

I use Skype for my calls and so download and install the application on my PCs.  However on Windows 10 it pre-installs Skype Preview which I found takes over the normal Skype application and therefore doesn't allow me to send/receive calls.  Simplest solution I found was to uninstall Skype Preview using Powershell.  

Open PowerShell as administrator and run:-

Get-AppxPackage *skypeapp* | Remove-AppxPackage

Unable to start debugging on the web server (Visual Studio 2010) and IIS 7.5

Running Visual Studio 2010 Asp.Net web code using the Local IIS Web server Version 7.5 (Windows 7 x64), I came across the error:-
Unable to start debugging on the web server. The server what is an abortion committed a protocol violoation. Section=ResponseStatusLine

 

The problem exists because medication abortion it seems that having skype installed and running can take control of Port 80 which is used as the default port for IIS.  Therefore to fix this, make sure you uncheck the "Use port 80 and 443 as alternatives for incoming connections" in Skype - Tools - options - Advanced - Connection.
