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.)


I am currently using the latest version of Skype on my office computer, but after the Exchange migration, Skype stopped working (unable to connect error). The tech team said they are looking into it.

I am unable to make calls using Skype's web version. Is it safe to install an older version of Skype? I found the installers at oldversion.com. If yes, which version would work best with Windows 7.

Hi there,

Is this your work computer? Is your computer connected to a domain via company domain? For one, you might not have permissions to install programs. Only the IT Department does.

Hi all,

Skype keeps freezing after a new Windows 7 install. It starts ok, but then freezes when I click on any
part of skype to do something.

Have followed the skype instuctions for these kind of problems, have re-installed skype, but the
problem still persists.

Any ideas from anyone?


A:Skype keeps freezing after new Windows 7 install...

If that's a new install of Windows 7, is Service Pack 1(SP1) part of it, and has the 200+ updates been installed?

Do the following in your computer so we have some idea of its hardware and operating system:
Download and save the TSG System Information Utility (SysInfo.exe) file.
After it's been downloaded and saved, double-click it to run it.
Information about your computer will appear.
Return here to your thread, then copy-and-paste the ENTIRE text here.

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!

I installed the latest version 5 in my computer and when you do a restart it crashes. I rolled back with rollback rx and installed version and everything is OK. I did an internal update to version 5 and all went well until you restart then it crashes. Rolled back to version 4 and it's OK. The only problem with version 4 is that when you close it minimizes to the tray. I have the box unchecked under advance but no good so I run it in compatibility mode Vista SP2 and that took care of the problem.

A:Skype Crashes Version 5

I'd previously been running 5.0 (freshly installed about 2 months ago when I freshly reinstalled Win7 Pro x64, after a year of running happily on my initial Win7 Pro x64 install back in December 2009).

No problems with Skype on 5.0.

I just downloaded and installed/upgraded to the latest version (right over my existing installed 5.0) and it went without a hitch. Seemed to work fine.

Restarted the machine. Still seems to work fine. No problems at all.

But then... I was not upgrading from 4.2 to 5.1 as you are.

Sorry... no help, I know.

So, I have this problem on my laptop: I was using version of Skype and after AVG installed some updates on 5.04.12 it started to cause BSOD every time I tried to open Skype. I'm not 100% positive that AVG causes it, but each time BSOD appeared, it was said there that problem was caused by avgidsdriverx.sys. When I understood why BSOD is happening, I ended up with installing latest Skype version and for now it all works just fine. Also tried to install version before that - got BSOD again. Is there any way for me to return to old version of Skype (new one is okay, but it uses way to much memory comparing to older version)?

Thanks in advance.

Hi there
Skype seems to have fixed their mobile application (Android > 2.3) -- Calling with video now works properly -- quality of the video is improved.

No problem on Windows 8 Enterprise -- even activated the webcam OK -- and I couldn't find a driver for it manually.

Anybody who is on the net and still making traditional calls should consider this type of service -- There may be other providers if you don't want to use Skype.

For example 30 min call from smart phone Brussels Belgium to Iceland standard landline (not Skype at receiving end) ===> 18 EUR (traditional method at Sunday rates with "frequent number" discounts)

Skype same call from mobile via Wifi ====> 0.08 EUR !!!!!!! big big difference.

It's a no brainer -- the money you save can get you the SSD you want quickly.

(If you don't like Skype --there are other equivalents I'm sure --worth while using these methods whoever the provider is).

There's no Metro app yet for this -- you'll have to use the desktop at the moment if running from a PC.

The malware staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response, there will be 1 reply.

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 recently installed Skype (3.8). I then restarted my computer. After about a minute, my computer freezed up. The only way I could get out of this, is by physically holding the power button until the computer turns off. Everytime I login my computer freezes up again. I looked it up on the internet and it looks like a lot of people are having the problem with Skype and Vista. There aren't any answers out there. Does anyone know how to resolve this issue?

Thank You

Things I have already tried:
1. Run in Safe Mode and uninstall Skype
2. System Restore (in safe mode)
3. Last Known Good Configuration (during boot)
4. Doing following commands using Admin account in Safe Mode:
regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\vbscript.dll
regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\jscript.dll

Side Note: This also messed up Firefox. I will try to post details about what happened to Firefox.

A:Solved: Vista keeps Freezing (Skype 3.8)

Here is how I fixed it:

Download the same exact installation for Skype and then right click and select "Run as Administrator." Now go through the entire setup. Then restart the computer and then use Control Panel to remove Skype. Restart one more time and the problem should be gone!

Yeah I just got my new computer not long ago and there has been nothing but trouble using Skype. During video calls Skype freezes and locks up my computer making me have to hold down the power button to shut it off. This happens often. I first thought it was a video card issue and Dell sent me a replacement card. Still happens. I have to chalk it up to Skype not being very compatible with Windows 8. This issue only happens when on Skype. I saw there was a patch Windows update for Skype but I have it already installed. I have no clue how to stop this issue. This is a brand new Dell XPS 8700 with 12gb Ram. This kind of stuff should not happen. Anyone have any thoughts? Thanks.

I have used Skype previously w/zero problems, but it's been three years. Today I've uninstalled/downloaded Skype twice, on each computer (desktop w/Windowns 7, laptop inspiron w/Windows 10), w/the same result: My screen on both laptop and desktop does not look like the one I'm supposed to have; I guess it's the "HOME" screen.

Watched a few YouTube how-to's, and their screen shows a regular desktop app, with the usual options across the top (file, options, tools, etc.) plus different options along the left than I have. I DO NOT HAVE those options....I cannot make a call! What I see is: in the middle of the screen, Welcome, (my name) and below that, "Start a conversation." (YES, I'm signed in w/my account.) Along the left the only options are: chat, call, contacts, notifications. The "contacts" are the test audio icon, plus a handful of people I've never heard of.

Can anyone tell me why I'm not seeing the "right" desktop screen and having all these difficulties?

I use it primarily to video-chat with my fiance for a few hours in the evening over Skype and for my work, graphics artist, running Illustrator and Photoshop, both the latest versions.

I've had a few problems with it before, I think that I mistook them for a virus though. I had reformatted it before back to factory standards, but now the problems seem to be back.

What the issue is, it keeps seizing up randomly - largely while I'm running Skype, but that is usually when I'm on the computer. I can often tell that its

Then the person that I'm talking to, their feed will die so that I can't see them at all, freezing in place, but they can still hear and see me just fine. I've noticed that while its doing this, I'll also loose control of the task bar, so I can't control the volume or access the start menu.

I've also had roughly four blue screens that I can remember, generally while I'm Skyping - this is what made me believe that i... Read more

I've been getting BSODs for quite some time now, random freezing and now Skype and Firefox have started to crash randomly when before it was perfectly fine.

I think it might be a hardware issue but I'm unsure at this moment, I was hoping to know if any of you guys could help me find out. Thanks for your time.

I have been using Skype paid calls for business usage and have huge problems with the Other side not hearing me well or at all. It used to work OK but now I have to restart hub or reconnect or just wait . This is for calls to International. If I call skype to skype it is OK most of time. My provider BT has checked all hub settings and network seems fine. I am about to give up on skype to non skype as a business option and the fact I am spending good money and cant get instant support really doesnt help. I am out of ideas
Using Vista with Broadband wireless hub and have good connection with other devices.

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 know nothing about Skype and would appreciate some guidance.

Which version of Skype do I download for Windows 7 ?
Skype for Windows desktop shows Skype for Windows 8. I am wondering if I should be looking elsewhere ?
When I click on Get Skype for Windows Desktop it only offers Windows 8
OldApps.com offers SkypeSetup_6.9.0.106.msi ... 21.5MB

Whereas Skype for Windows 8 offers SkypeSetup.exe ... 1.5 MB

A search of Skype forum has turned up nothing (and the Skype forum has been hit by spammers today)
I have read that Microsoft own Skype so I am hoping this forum can point me in the right direction.
When I tried to find a skype-forum ... a Google search turned up a lot of skype-porn sites and a lot of inactive forums.

One of my sons has just moved to Japan and he uses Skype, so I assume I should also have Skype

Thank you
