If you don't actually need the bingie version of the skin helper script for anything else, then just delete the it from the addon directory. Probably a good idea to also delete any entries in the packages folders of the addon directory if you see the skin helper mentioned there. Also do the same the in User Data directory.
That's what I've done in the past with removing problem addons. Has always worked for me with no issue.

@slawomir , Amber has skin.helper.service.widgets as a dependency.  You can just disable Amber if you are not using it, delete the skin helper service widgets addon, and then re-enable Amber if you plan on using it.

@slawomir , Amber is not connected to Bingie.  What happens is that Amber has skin.helper.service.widgets as a dependency, which was probably updated when you installed Bingie.  I will close this thread now, since there is nothing to solve.
