"Carissa M.

Could anyone upload skype 6.1 or lower please...

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

Thanks in advance!

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 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.

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 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.
These two are like a bad dream.   
Any help with completely deleting both would be appreciated.

Q: Skype

I have asked in Skype community last week, I am still waiting on a reply.
 
My issue is...
 
When i turned on my laptop it loaded accept Skype it told me there was bad sectors within the program, so i proceeded to uninstall it and re-install it, then that's where things got worse.
 
After unstalling it, i tried to instal it i got a 1603 error so after doing some research i then started to get rid of everything to do with skype, i got stuck on this one issue, when i went on to this part "C:\Program Files (x86)\Skype\Phone" the skype.exe could not be deleted because of this message.
 
"The action can't be completed because the file is open in Base Filtering Engine.
Close this file and try again."
 
I have tried everything to get rid of it or at least stop the service, to no avail, i even tried to delete it through the command prompt and i got the same results. As a last resort i downloaded the Mocrosoft Fix It program i saw that skype was not listed so i went to others and it asked me for a product code which i cannot find, so i am stuck with this part.
 
Then i thought i would just install over it i just get the same message of the 1603 error.
 
So i need a solution to this, as i am out of ideas, I would like very much to use skype again but unitl further notice I am without it.
 
A little info that may help you.

Is there any way to get rid of ads in Skype? I'm using the latest version and set my privacy settings not to use targeted ads, however I still get ads on the skype "homepage" (of the program itself.)

Is there a list of Hosts they use, that I can manually block inside my Hosts file?

Or is there some fee I can pay for a "pro" version of skype, which doesn't have these ads?

Maybe someone knows the last old version of skype without ads? (At least, without insecure flash-based ones?)

I'm looking for any way to get rid of the ads in Skype, including actually paying for the software. Anyone know if this is possible? Thanks!
