Preferred Solution: Do I need both Skype app and Skype for desktop?

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: Do I need both Skype app and Skype for desktop?

Unless you are on an RT tablet I would just use the desktop version, from the reviews the app is not very good, perhaps after some future updates it will be better.

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

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.

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.

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?

So simply put, I cannot use skype for desktop. The app version that is preinstalled, I can't use because it drives me insane so uninstalled it, however, it IS STILL blocking skype for desktop from working. I've attached a screeenshot to show you what I mean.

Is there a way to get rid of the app version of skype since clearly uninstalling it did nothing.

Just to provide a bit more info, no, I am NOT already signed in on my pc.

EDIT: More info, once it "breaks" it starts a skype process which I cannot kill until reboot.

A:W8 app blocks SKYPE FOR DESKTOP

Sign in to Skype on any other computer or smartphone, open chat with anybody and send:

So I have a problem with a fake update pop-up. It's the last thing that's left from something else, I do not recall exactly what it was, but Mobogenie does sound familiar. I wanted to download a program that allowed me to open a file (I thought it was some sort of text file I needed for a thesis in school, but it turned out to be a frikkin picture, so I got nothing for my troubles!), and apart for letting me open the file, it installed a bunch of other crap.

Mine too failed to update yesterday, so I suppose it could be a problem with Microsoft servers (those have been becoming quite common lately, especially with updates on Windows 10). You might have downloaded the online/web/stub installer thinking it's the offline installer. The offline installer is almost 40MB in size. If the installer you downloaded is just a few MBs in size, that's the online installer and will fail to install the same way updating directly from within Skype failed. I'm retrying the update now, and Skype Update says the package size is 40,237KB (39.29MB). Well, the download just finished before I could post this and the upgrade just succeeded (version 7.18.0.111). Get the offline installer here https://www.skype.com/go/getskype-full

Okay so.Since I got my laptop in December, skype hasn't worked on it. When I say it doesn't work, I mean it loads up fine, responds quickly, I can send messages fine, but the moment I call somebody, the audio of not only the skype call but also every other program on my computer becomes slow, robotic and unintelligable. Along with this, my skype partner can't hear my voice unless they turn their audio to 100%. You'd think this is a skype problem as when I call on google hangouts or something similar, I don't have this issue. I contacted skype support but that was about as useful as talking to a brick wall with a representative badge. Someone even suggested it was my skype account that was causing this, but it works perfectly on my mobile, on other laptops and on my desktop. (I know you'll say just use skype on those! but I don't have the patience to sit beside a power outlet all day as skype drains mobile charge in 0.2 seconds, and my desktop headphone input is broken.)Pleeeeease somebody help as it's incredibly frustrating being unable to use skype on my laptop!

you might find this article interesting about the VoSky Call Center

The VoSky Call Center from ActionTec connects a Windows PC to your phone line for use with the Skype Internet calling service. It can even route calls to and from your cellphone.
Yet somehow, Skype is changing everything. Twenty-five million people are using it to make free calls, much to the annoyance of the phone companies. College students call home and friends with it. Business travelers keep in touch with the family. Visitors to the United States chit-chat with their buddies in Europe, Japan or wherever. The software free from skype.com and available for Mac, Windows, Linux and PocketPC is pitifully easy to use, and the sound quality is more like FM radio than a phone call.

Skype's popularity has caused some impressive ripples in the fabric of business and society. The word is now a verb, la Google ("Have your people Skype my people"). Last fall, eBay bought Skype for $1.3 billion and 32.4 million shares of eBay stock. And most intriguing of all, an entire industry of Skype accessories has sprung up.


But one niggling footnote continues to dog Skype: to make free calls, you and your conversation partner must both sit there in front of your computers, nerdlike, wearing headsets. You can call regular telephones, but that's not free. (Rates are complicated, but 2.1 cents a minute is typical.) And you still have to sit handcuffed to your computer.
