My Office 2019 has installed Skype for business and I am trying to uninstall it
According to Google - I need to run Get-AppxPackage *Microsoft.SkypeApp* | Remove-AppxPackage under admin / Powershell
But I can't get it to work
Anyone got any working way to dispose of the virus for good ?

    You don't.  Its part of Office.

    What you're trying to do to uninstall Skype as it comes bundled in 10.  That doesn't apply in 11 (it did initially but they changed it and now if you want it you get it from the Store (or the website)).

    There should be an option not to autorun at startup.  Turn that off and forget about it.
