Preferred Solution: Skype retarded support: Anyone upload Skype 6.1

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Skype retarded support: Anyone upload Skype 6.1

You can find 6.1 online with a quick google search, such as at http://www.filepuma.com/download/skype_6.1.0.129-2261/For even older versions: http://www.oldversion.com/windows/skype-5-9-0-123Don't have version 6.3 to verify the crash issue using the microsoft log in.

Dear
 
I noticed that skype has send to all skype contacts a certain link, to one contact even multiply links.
 
this all happens on the same day: 17th december from 14:30 -14:39.
 
I haven't seen any spam send anymore after that.
 
Skype support told me to reset my password, I did, and to download safety scanner from microsoft. they proviced me with the link.
 
when I try to open the link, the browser cannot load the page, it is stuck in a loop:  sometimes I see a page, but just for a second or even less, then mostly white page, and browser keeps trying to load the page. and in chrome : a  little shield symbol on the right side of the address bar says that it's trying to load scripts from unauthenticated sources. this message dissappears very quickly.
 
 
I have skype installed on two laptops, and on my smartphone (iphone).
 
The problem I told about, is on one laptop that has no antivirus. I did not yet checked the other laptop, if the microsoft page opens or not. but I do have bitdefender internet security (paid) installed on the second laptop.
 
I want to be sure the laptop that has the problem, is virusfree.

A:spam send in skype account to all skype contacts - cannot load page safety scan

I downloaded the safety scanner from microsoft from my other laptop without any issue.
 
copied it to a usb, put it on the problem laptop, a full scan and nothing found.
 
I realize I did had a antivirus paid version (kaspersky internet securuity) on the laptop, as I first said that it had no antivirus.
 
I only disabled it because it had problems running.
 
Now I enabled it, updated it and run a full scan. nothing found.
 
I don't know if skype is the cause and not a virus?  the skype workers told me that the cause could be anything (email, virus on computer).
 
I mostly use skype on iphone, and here I'm confused with what the skype workers said: one said that iphone can not be infected, so no need to check the iphone.
an other said: you can download an app from app store to scan for viruses, because it is possible that the virus is on the iphone.
 
This is really not clear anymore.

I've experienced some problems and discomfort with skype for win8:
- not able to show screen,
- terrible design,
- very slow response (i.e. when I click RMB, the menu shows up in several seconds, and I expect to see it immideately),
- doesn't understand links to skype chat like skype:?chat&blob=blahblahblah, when I click it nothing happens.

I've also tried skype for desktop, it was even worse:
- when I changed online status to invisible (i've also tried with N/A), skype stopped to receive and send messages,
- when this or another error occurs, I try to kill skype process via task manager, TM then firstly says that skype is not responding (so i am trying to kill process), after that TM stops responding as well.
So when i've tried skype for desktop i had to reboot my laptop about 5 times in a day.

Now I've installed skype from Store back, but I still need to go to skype chat.

Could anyone please help me either make skype 5.x/6.x work on win8, or enter the chat which i need?

Here's my system: http://i.imgur.com/Fu65f57.png

According to reports, Skype has stopped support for Trillian and other 3rd-party IM's, as of 2014_08_01.  The report stated that last year it was announced by Microsoft last year, Skype is no longer supporting Skypekit and thus it's now time for an official goodbye to third-party apps like Trillian which had native support for Skype.
Although I don't use Skype, or any other IM software, I thought that this might be of interest.  I'm only going by that the report said.  If any other information is available, please confirm this.
Trillian blogged (NOT THE SOURCE OF THE ABOVE, JUST MORE RESEARCH ): "In order to connect to Skype, Trillian relies upon an SDK developed by Skype known as "SkypeKit".  Unfortunately, after Microsoft acquired Skype they made the decision to terminate the SkypeKit program, leaving Trillian in a state of limbo in terms of future updates and ongoing support for Skype connectivity.  We've recently received official confirmation that the SkypeKit program will be winding down at the end of this month, July 2014".
Have a great day!

I have tried everything imaginable to get rid of these two.  I can delete Skype via 
control panel, but it comes back and re-installs itself.  
Click to call will not go away.  When I try to use the control panel I get a message that 
says, "close Chrome browsers to uninstall".   I've tried doing that and still get that same message.
I've even uninstalled Chrome and re-installed it with the same result.

Not so much a software support question, but this is the best I could figure it'd go into... but if I have an Office 365 subscription that includes 60 minutes of Skype calling a month, do I still need to purchase a Skype number so people can call me and for people to know who's calling them?

I tested it out as it is right now and when I call my dad's phone, says "Unknown caller."

I have always used Skype for Desktop and only recently found that there is a Skype Modern App on my system.
From what I have read it would seem the best plan would be to ditch the App and just continue with the desktop version.
Have there been any recent changes that would make the the Modern App a better solution than the Desktop version?

A:Skype for Desktop vs Skype Modern App

They have updated it recently so it doesn't continue to ring even when you have answered the desktop version which is why I uninstalled it in the first place. This means in theory you could install both and answer whichever you felt like at the time.

I prefer the look of the desktop version personally so I never re-installed the Modern App version.

I'm confused about Skype. Evidently, and yes, I did use this in the past. Now I want to use it again but am having trouble signing in. I'm confused about Microsoft acct sign in. I also have a @live.com acct. It says to sign in with Microsoft acct. I need clarity between the two. Also, I have Windows. Is there also a Windows password? I'm mixed up as you can read. Can someone help? Thanks.
 

A:Skype

You can use two different accounts to sign into Skype. You can use a "Skype Account that is for for Skype only, or you can use a Microsoft Account such as an Outlook.com, Live.com, Hotmail.com, etc account. You can use either account type based on what you have, the reason for the two accounts is because Microsoft bought Skype years ago and migrated their Messenger users over to it so they allow both account types.

If you have a Live.com account you should be able to use that with the Microsoft Account option, If you have a Skype account then you need to use the Skype account option.

You can also link your Skype account to a Microsoft account if you want: https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA12060/how-do-i-link-my-skype-and-microsoft-accounts

I then updated the app, and I could see 1 out of the 3 messages, but only 1. I checked Skype on my laptop, but it is the same--I can only see that 1 message, not the rest of them.

This is the third thread you've started describing problems with a computer you haven't used in a while.

Computers don't deteriorate on a shelf in just a couple of months unless the hardware is exposed to harsh conditions. Did that happen? More likely, someone used the computer while you were gone. If that's the case, I suspect you'll be chasing down an untold number of problems for quite some time.

Hey guys, hopefully someone can help me out.

I installed Skype from the Microsoft Store, went through the installation process, and then it brought me to the Skype home screen (where you can see your contacts, ect.) However, as soon as it gets to that screen and makes the Skype start up noise, it brings me back to the Windows Home Screen. It shows the app is running in the left side bar (if you put the mouse in the upper left corner of the screen and view all running programs) but when I click on it, it just opens for a quick second and then closes back out.

Anyone else run into this problem?
