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

I have a very new, about two weeks old, Acer Aspire One netbook. I am running Windows XP and having problems with Skype. Every time I call people and use the video the image freezes for the other person. It freezes every few seconds to every few minutes which is really irritating having to constantly restart the video. I have tried closing all other open applications and that does not seem to make a difference. I was wondering if there is anything I can do to keep this from happening? Thanks!

> "Tune up utilities" may have indeed done more harm than good.

Current accepted wisdom with Win 7 is to NOT use a "cleaner."

If you ever think your Registry needs to be cleaned, repaired, boosted, tuned-up, cured, tweaked, fixed, or optimized it shouldn't.

In other words, injudicious use of "Registry cleaners" CAN cause problems.

I have been running skype on my computer, windows seve home pro 64 bit, for about a few months now, and I noticed my computer slowing down, checked task manager and saw my cpu usage at about 100%, with "skypepm.exe *32" (description = skype extras manager) running the show. I simply deleted the entry, and everything back to normal, is there a simpilar wat to fix the problem. I do not know why, but skype has a *32 next to the entry in task manager, that must mean that I have a 32 bit program installed. Also, when I open skype for the first time after a reboot, I get a window saying: skype extras manager has stopped working", as far as I'm concered it can shut down for ever since I do not have extras installed. i googled the problem, but all related problems that i found were from 2006 and earlier.
Another problem, still not sure if it is related, when I speak with one specific friend, many times, not always, my sound gets messed up, and the only way getting it back is by rebooting. Does all this suggest to reinstall a different version of skype ? Other than the above it realy works great. Thanks in advanced.

Hi,
I am helping a friend who has a Dell Inspiron N5105 laptop running Vista Home Premium.

It was supplied only recently as part of an insurance claim settlement - she was told it had just been built for her specifically so she expected it to be problem free.

The internet works fine and she can check her email and facebook, etc - but although Skype 4.2 is pre-installed she cannot logon to the service using her ID and password, and neither can I, it just says for ages "Signing in" and eventually "Skype cannot connect to your account - for help click here" but that link doesn't work either.

She has asked for a password reset and logged onto the Skype website to complete this successfully, but the client still does the above - and the same with my own account.

Also, the screen to activate her copy of MS Office XP is corrupted (just showing as blank box!).
To try to resolve both problems, I backed up her files (only a few) and did a factory reset from the recovery partition. The Skype problem remains.

The Office activation wizard now offers to activate over the internet ... but says it can't make a connection to the server, and when I try to use the telephone method it refuses to give us a phone number to call.

I have connected the laptop to a different internet connection and the problems remain.
She tells me that her boss is also unable to activate the latest version of Office that they have too, so this isn't just a Office XP issue (whi... Read more

Hello guys,

As you can see from the title I have a problem with Microphone using Skype (and in general I think - just won't work in Win either).
I can hear the other side, but they can't hear me.

I have Creative SB X-Fi and using Windows Vista Ultimate x64.

Not sure if it's relevant but on the back of the computer there is four ports (places to plug in the headset - pardon my english) to plug in my headset: two green ones (light green where my speakers are plugged in when I'm not using headset and a bit darker green if I'm not mistaken), one pink and one blue.

As I did before, I unplug the speakers and plug in the green end from my headset instead the speakers and the pink (microphone) end into the pink port in my sound card, but microphone just isn't working (the other side can't hear me).

From the pic you can see how my sound settings is looking (my headset is not plugged in in the pic). If I plug in the headset with phones in light green port and mic in pink settings look the same. If I plug in the headset with phones in light green and mic in blue says Microphone (first from the top) "working", but still they can't hear me in Skype.
I don't even know what is the difference between Microphone and Microphone FP.

Hi, I hope someone can help to solve this problem!

I have Skype version 3.8 installed on two computers. Computer A is my main desktop computer, running Windows Vista, I have several years of Skype history saved on this computer. Computer B is my laptop, running Windows XP, there is very little Skype history on this computer because I've only been using it for a couple of weeks.

Recently I was using computer B and was logged into Skype, chatting to some contacts. Someone in the next room turned on computer A and it automatically logged into Skype. So my account was logged into Skype in two locations at the same time. The person using computer A could see everything I was typing on Skype on computer B, it popped up on the screen of computer A as I typed it on computer B. He called me into the next room to show me what happened.

I signed out of Skype on both computers. When I signed back in on computer A, my whole Skype history for every contact was completely blank apart from what I was typing to one particular contact at the time the dual login occurred. This is very upsetting because I had several years of chat history on computer A, and I really wanted to keep it.

I logged out Skype of computer A and logged back in on computer B. The dual login doesn't appear to have affected the chat history on computer B, it has retained chat history for several weeks before the dual login occurred.

I don't see how being logged in in two locations at the same time can h... Read more

I haven't received grey circles myself in a while but I have experienced these before when my internet was kicking in and out. Are you positive your internet is staying up? Do you have any anti virus programs running? (malwarebytes etc)

While doing a couple of google searches to see if there were any other possible reasons which may help to explain it I did run across this.

1. Close Skype.
2. Ensure that "Show hidden files and folders" is switched on.
3. Click Start and then Run...

Everything was working fine but now she says that my video and sound freeze up at random points for a few seconds a couple of times and the resume normally.
Not her or me are using any download software or have opened browsers or anything, we both have fast internet connections.
Whats strange is that i can hear and see her normal at all times but she is having trouble seeing and hearing me at some points, it happens quite often infact in every call.
I have checked my ports are forwarded properly. It has been working before fine but when the last version came out it seems to act up like this.
Oh and one more thing, i noticed that every time that happens my green skype icon in the right bottom screen goes to gray and says connecting but i can still hear her and see her fine but she says my picture freezes up and she doesnt hear me.

Good day.
I just recently got a toshiba satellite equipped with windows 7, and i've been using it rather frequently. I don't have many programs on it, i transferred all my music and files to it through network so i don't have to download them and risk getting viruses. I periodically do search for spyware and maleware and virus and nothing has come up. Altough, i wanted to play a game i could never play on my desktop so i installed it. It installed fine and once i went to play it, it told me to restart. so i did and it asked again, so i looked up and someone said i could use this program that came with w7 and it changed a setting to xp. that aswell didn't work. so i uninstalled the game and it unistalled fine. later on, i froze and i turned off the computer. so i turned it back on and it asked me if i wanted to do a restore so i did, after the restore it reinstalled my game back, i tried unistalling it and it said setup.exe has stopped working, would you like to check online for a solution online or close the program. The same thing happened when i did a restore shortly after i got the computer and it wouldn't let me uninstall skpye, when it let uninstall it before the restore.

When we start a conversation, he hears me fine for a minute and then the sound gets crappy. His internet connection is also perfectly fine; his roommate's computer does not have this problem. Can anyon help me diagnose the issue? Thank you!

Just bought HP Windows 7x64 and cannot download Skype 4.1. Error message says "SkypeSetup.exe is not a valid Win32 application." Has anyone run into this problem and gotten it fixed so you can download Skype? If so, how did you do it? Thanks so much for your quickfix!!

Hi wwarren777, Welcome to SF,

I guess it's a bad download. Try to download from Download Skype 4.1.0.179 - FileHippo.com

Hope that helps

Hi, I bought new motherboard, processor and a new momery card of ddr3 2gb last week.
I formatted the computer completely and then installed my original WinXP Pro, updated it, installed the motherboard driver and the graphic card driver.
I downloaded the latest driver of realtek and then I felt like I was ready to go with my games\programs.
I installed skype the latest version and called my friends using realtek device.
I merely talked for a minute and then my sound went off, input, output, everything!
I tried to use old skype versions and reinstall realtek but it doesn't seem to fix the problem.
The only thing that did work is to set the output to my default (microsoft digital sound system 80) and it worked, i could hear my friend again and everything else.
The problem is that with realtek I can hear them with my headset and thats what I want.
I sent the computer to a tech guy where I bought the the motherboard and the other stuff and he told me that I installed everything just fine and there is no problem at all.
So I came here in hope someone here would know how to fix such a problem, I've looked in skype forums and there are more people with the same problem but with no solution.
I hope you can help me.
Thanks.
 

A:Sound problem while using Skype

Hi Klala Welcome to TSG

At least some of the problem with sound and video on Skype and Living Messenger is due to traffic shaping by the ISP .

My friend's Skype isn't working properly (Win7 - using a laptop, integral speakers and microphone).

When she tries the test, the microphone bar moves up and down ok but when she plays it back, there's no sound. So you'd expect it to be the speakers right?

But when she and I Skype, I can't hear her, but she can hear me.

My Skype is working with everyone else and also with her other laptop.

So presumably it's something at her end but who knows what?

TIA!

A:Strange Skype problem

I don't use Skype but perhaps there is a setting within it that allows you to choose or deselect audio outputs?

Do mp3s play through both when you have Skype open too?

Hi guys,

I have a few problems with my computer, a few days ago I was able to log with my skype and use it but yesterday I lost my contacts, I tried to reinstall skype (after I uninstalled) but it couldn't load any contacts and isn't working at all. Later today I was using my MSN Messenger and when I tried to log in again I couldn't log in keeps saying that there's a new version and when I try to install it sends me to a Microsoft site (http://download.live.com/?sku=messenger) and when I click on download keeps telling me that server not found, this also happen with other pages like windowsupdate.com

I don't have a Anti-Virus installed in my computer.

Thanks in advance for all your help.

ps. which is the best AV?
