Q: skype password

Hi!
so, I have just tried to sign in to skype, but I keep getting the notification: password incorrect. Even after going through the motions of requesting a new password, this message comes up. I have even uninstalled/reinstalled skype, just to make sure I have
the latest version.
Tired of coming up with new passwords for Skype to ignore, please help me.
kind regards

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.)

Hi.
I changed password for my Skype account reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed today and after all I spend some time to find out that this operation also changed password for my [email protected] account. I can now log in using [email protected] account only with
password that I set for Skype account (reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed). By the way email works with old password just fine. What the problem?! Why the same password for all now?!

If you lose your skype password. Skype Tech support is worse than useless. There has been an ongoing problem that they won't acknowledge where the password recovery email either takes 8-24 hours to arrive (and it expires in 6 hours) Or it never comes at all. If you manage to get a live chat with a human they will use the exact same recovery method, You can plead, beg, cry and scream and they will refuse to send you an immediate email "For your Protection". Bizarrely, any other email from the Skype.com domain usually arrives instantly. Which suggests to me that yes, my email is in fact set up correctly and is not blocking emails from Skype.  I've witnessed this with multiple people and multiple Skype Accounts. We can't *all* be doing it wrong.
 
There are several utilities on the web, but I'm not sure what I can trust. The free ones that I've found stink of malware. I'm supposed to download a special tool to enable the download? WTF!? I don't think so!
 
I'm willing to pay for a utility provided it's Portable.
I already have 4 people waiting for a solution to this in addition to myself. I consider myself an experienced computer tech and I'm considered a miracle worker by people in my neighborhood, but this is a nut that I just can't crack.

Dear BleepingComputer Technician:
 
My mother-in-law was here recently helping my family with the birth of our new child.  After three weeks of using our computer, she suddenly wasn't able to sign into Skype.  Her password had been changed.  Then as we tried to reset the password we discovered her email address had been deleted.  She had just accessed and used her email the day before.  Her information was definitely stolen and I feel it was probably logged while using our computer.  The reason is that prior to her arrival my wife and I have noticed many pop-ups, especially when using Google Chrome.  Since we are living in China and I tire of being unable to access several websites, I had attempted to download a VPN browser software that a friend was using, and it was free of spyware/malware.  But in my haste, I downloaded and installed the software from a location that I am sure had spyware/malware software attached..  so now, I beg, please, help!

I'm a new Skype user (Skype Portable) and the only way I can get Skype to remember my password is to not sign out but use the Quit Skype option when right-clicking the taskbar entry. I found this by doing a global search.

Doing this leaves me signed in to Skype (Task Manager shows the two Skype entries), so I'm wondering if this could be a problem, security wise.

Also, if anyone does know of a way to get Skype to actually remember the password, maybe adding a line to an ini file (appinfo.ini ?) I'd sure like to know.

Thanks for any help.

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?

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.

As above really. Trying to create a network for file sharing, as have upgraded the 'server' (part of a Workgroup, not a Domain) from WinXP to Win7 and experienced problems ever since. Ironically the problems haven't mainly been with sharing files between Win7 and WinXP systems, but between 2 Win7 systems.

I bought a new Win7 laptop and tried to connect it to the server, but it hasn't had Read/Write privileges over the files in the Win7 server. Entering a username and password to gain access to the servers folders has not been a problem, and as far as I know, opening files such as documents has not been a problem either. However, when trying to save an edited document, access is denied, and if I try to open an executable file (this is necessary for a node installation), it prompts me for a network password.

Every combination possible of username and password from the 2 systems (including '\' or 'SYSTEMNAME\' before the username) has not worked. I tried syncing the times which was apparently a previous problem, but to no avail. I am unable to access Local Security Policy, as the server is running off Home Premium. I have tried creating a new workgroup, removing and changing passwords, enabling guest access to the network through the Windows Resource Kit Command Shell, creating identical users on both computers, but nothing appears to have worked.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!

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

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.

Welcome to Seven Forums L Maclaren.

Are you downloading from here?
Download Skype on your computer - Windows, Mac, and Linux - Get Skype

You can turn Avast off while downloading to see if that helps.

I'm unable to register with Skype when using AOL. When following the sign up instructions it says "not connected" at the bottom of the skype window, despite AOL Broadband being connected ok. The "sign up" button isn't lit as a result of this.

Anyone seen this before?

Thanks.

Try using a different browser.
