Preferred Solution: Skype 5.5 for Windows update: Support for Windows 8

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/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

When I double click any of the following to open them, I immediately get the message:
"[program] has stopped working Windows is checking for a solution to the problem."
Followed soon after by: "[Program] has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly.
Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available."
 
So far, I have found that each of the following all experience the same when I try to
start them: Skype, McAfee, Desktop Windows Manager and Microsoft Help & Support.
 
It was suggested that I try to remove malware. I have not paid for a program to do so yet.
I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Skype but not the others. I first noticed this when I
tried to use Skype yesterday. I hadn't used it since July.

I recently did an unusually long Windows update that took about an hour in total, and once my computer was running again, Windows gadgets said "Windows Desktop Gadgets has stopped working" and then I tried to open Skype which also said "Skype has stopped working". I tried updating Java, a second Windows update, uninstalling and reinstalling Skype, advanced uninstalling Skype and reinstalling, but nothing I'm doing seems to be having any effect. I'm completely out of ideas, and was hoping someone could help me to solve this?

A:After Windows update Skype and Windows Desktop Gadgets no longer run.

Bump. This is at 100 views with no one offering any advice. I'm really stuck here, I've exhausted everything that I know how to do to fix faulty computers. I would really appreciate any advice. Thank you in advance.

Thank you for your help.

Hi everyone,

Just need to know if whether or not it is normal for Windows Update to include an update for skype among the list of updates.

I've already hidden this skype update as I had planned to uninstall skype for so long but kept forgetting to do it.

Any comments and ideas will be greatly appreciated. Thank you all and God Bless,

A:skype update listed in Windows Update

Ye - it's normal, since MS bought Skype a few months ago, it's now part of the Microsoft Update family, along with Office and MSE

Starting a new thread. Prior one's subject is "Error 1663".
This time lets talk, specifically, about the Windows Installer for Windows 7.
Is the installer a stand alone program?
Can it be deleted? How?
Where can I find a replacement?

A:Windows Installer 5 - trying to update to Skype 5.1 from 5.0

Hi Blockie:

It's built into Windows. If you need to repair it use SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker or run a Repair Install

Sometimes changing your AV to MSE or Avast5 with the Win7 firewall relieves these issues.

Study your logs and do basic troubleshooting: Computer lags every couple seconds

On September windows did an update and I had not rebooted since then until Skype Windows Update uninstalled 7 hours ago When I did I found that Skype was uninstalled When checked system restore it showed Skype set to be restored if went and did the restore point created by that update What I'd like to know is where the heck does Microsoft get the idea that they can dictate what software we run on our computers This is NOT the first time that a windows update has uninstalled another program but it is the last straw that makes me write this Skype is my MAIN link Windows 7 Update uninstalled Skype to family members some of which are in bad health so to have MS go and have their update uninstall it in my opinion is down right intrusive MS needs to stop trying to run a computer dictatorship and let people have Windows 7 Update uninstalled Skype whatever programs they want on their computers I am unsure if I want to let the update go next time as I have no idea what will get removed

A:Windows 7 Update uninstalled Skype

Well; Im not so sure that windows update necessairily uninstalled skype. It could be something else that did that. Have you checked the list of programs installed on your system to see if there still is any signs of it?

I don't use Skype. I uninstalled it. Windows Update keeps sending updates and marking them as 'important.' If I run the update I find I need to uninstall the program again.

I'd like reassurance that I can safely ignore these updates.

It makes sense to me, but software has gotten complex enough that I want to be sure that this update only updates Skype for Windows and that failure to implement it does not leave a gaping hole in Windows 7.

thanks

A:Skype For Windows - Program Not Installed - Important Update?

If you change windows update settings as shown below then in theory you will not be offered skype. If you prevoiusly had skype installed and are still offered updates then I guess that skype wasn't fully removed.

I have had issues since last patch Tuesday:
When I try to start Skype nothing seems to happen (no window opens).
Also IE does not want to connect to anything.
If I go to the options IE10 all except file and safety are greyed out.

I have tried resetting through the internet options in the control panel, check no proxies are set.
I have run 2 different "iefix " programs, looked in the event viewer (not sure what to look for, nothing obvious visible...)

I have uninstalled Skype and subsequently re-installed it.

My Firefox and Chrome are fine. I have done a system restore a few times which solves the problem, but as soon as updates are installed the same happens again.

I run W7 64 pro.

totally at a loss now, have spent 2 days trying to find what the cause is.

Would really appreciate if someone has any ideas!

many thanks, Jaap

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.

I haven't run the update and have taken the option of hiding the update. I have also changed the settings on autoupdate to inform me of updates and not install them without my input.
 
Is it possible my computer has been hacked or far more unlikely Microsoft has been hacked?
 
I ran Kaspersky and Spybot Search and Destroy, they found nothing nasty and Malwarebytes found a PUP.Optional.Hicosmea Registry key.
 
I'm running Windows 7 service pack 1.

I have 8.1. I installed Skype in my typical folders of "c:\programs" (I never install in "program files" unless program is forced to do so. All associated files should be, as they are coded, in "C:\Users\main\AppData\Roaming\Skype."My question....Will uninstalling the Metro Skype from its (memory hogging, fake) desktop affect, in anyway, my actual Skype (including logs)?Thank you.I reply as fast as I can, but it could be hours or months.

A:Uninstall Windows 8 Metro Skype Affect Regular Skype?

Well for starters you shouldn't really install two versions of Skype on the same PC.Uninstall both, then install the version you prefer.Accept the default install location as I can see no good reason for doing otherwise.

I purchased a new notebook with Windows 7 in October. During the first weeks I uninstalled McAfee and replaced the harddrive. Since November Windows Update fails with error messages and defender does not start anymore. I made several virus scans (complete) with multiple antivirus programs but nothing showed up.Since it took my days to install various software, I do not want to re-install W7. I also have no good backup that I could restore. I am really surprised that there is not even a single entry regarding the error code in the Microsoft Knowledge base or elsewhere.I really would appreciate help.

According to reports Skype has stopped support for Trillian and other rd-party IM's as of 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 3rd-party support other and Trillian IM Skype kills available please confirm this Trillian blogged Skype kills Trillian and other 3rd-party IM support 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 Have a great day

I am going to preform a factory wipe and reset  on my Dell Inspiron 530 which has windows Vista Home Premium installed. My question is will I have problems downloading any of the factory software and drivers or update the system if windows is not supporting Vista ? This is my first time doing this and any advice will be appreciated. Thank You.

A:Does windows support windows vista after a factory reset on Dell Inspiron 530

Microsoft have ditched support for all IE versions earlier than 11 and only allowed up to version 9 on Vista. Google have also ditched Chrome support for this operating system. Office 2013/2016/Windows Live Essentials all do not support Windows Vista.
Consider the Operating System at End of Life.
Theres no official free upgrade path to Windows 10 TH2 however you may use the unofficial 10130 Upgrade path. The Inspiron 530 runs Windows 10 64 Bit TH2 well.

I am using Windows 8 Release Preview on my desktop. At present the Windows marketplace has a very limited quantity of apps. I also saw the Windows phone marketplace and it has a lot of apps. I read in the news that it has more than 100000 apps presently. I think it a possibility that when the final version of Windows 8 releases we could also have the opportunity of using Windows Phone apps from the Windows marketplace. Since they too are metro so there is some possibility. What you think about that? Is that a possibility?

A:Would Windows 8 (final) support Windows Phone apps?

I hope so but I heard that the phone apps and the metro apps are in different coding language so that might not work out. Someone else might know better. I really wish that windows phone apps will work on windows 8 though for metro since that would mean a much easier transition if their marketplace is already growing.

Hi !
 
I want to use skype but do not want to use previous Windows account, and would not know how to recover informations necessary to do that and am sure I'll get stuck in the middle, as I have tried that when I had Windows Live and XP etc.
 
Can I get a skype app to replace the Windows sign in to Skype app.with MS account ?
 
I want the regular style I used to have with my user name and password to sign in.

A:Skype and Windows 8

The Skype Metro app only allows you to sign in by an MSC account (Hotmail, Live.com, Outlook, etc)
The Desktop Skype will allow you to sign in with your original Skype name and password.

After I installed Win 8, I tried to install Skype, I was directed to the Microsoft Shop page where I downloaded Skype and attempted to install it, It went through the motions and said Skype is being installed then it came up with the message that Skype cannot be installed.
Now when I go back to the Microsoft Shop page to try and install it again, I get the message, (You own Skype)
And it will not even allow me to try and install it. ????

I have found a fix for this, I downloaded Skype on my laptop and used that file to install it on my Win 8 desktop, it is not Skype for Win 8 though, but it works fine so who cares? :-)

So I waited a bit then double clicked and thought it was weird. So anyway I restarted my computer and tried that. It still wouldn't come up. So I just uninstalled it then installed it again.. It still won't come up when I click on it. D;
Help please?
 

A:Skype for windows 7 help?

Try installing the new Beta 5.0 version
http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/get-skype/on-your-computer/windows/beta/

Uninstall the other one first
Also, try running the setup file as an administrator (right click the file, run as administrator)

I can't seem to get Skype downloaded onto my laptop. If I open my apps I have an option to "Get Skype". If I select it I get "this product is installed" so I click on Open then I get a down;oad Skype screen.  I can get as far as running the Skype set up exe and it looks as if it is working but the installation doesn't complete so I have to end the task. I can't get past the scrolling installation bar.  I was told that Skype was preinstalled as I only recently bought this laptop but if that's the case, where do I find it?  Any comments or links to a suitable download appreciated.

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

I have a Lenovo laptop running Windows 8. The PC came pre-installed with Skype, but required an update. Since the update I have not been able to use Skype. I've unistalled/reinstalled it multiple times from the Windows Store without success. The link on the Windows Store is grayed and says Skype is installed, however it is not installed on the PC.

Has anyone else had issues with Skype and Windows 8?

Does anyone know if Skype works with Windows 98. I want to use it with my mum but she's only got W98. Some people say it's compatible and some say it's not.
Any idea ?

I have skype on Windows 7 running in my toolbar I can not open skype or quit skype can anyone tell me a fix ?

A:skype on Windows 7

Skype does want to show it's icon on the toobar. You can right click the icon to raise the context menu and select "Quit Skype" to stop the app. You should be able to just left click on the Skype icon to start it. If it's already running it also puts an icon in the 'system tray' area. You might have to open the Notifications flag to see the icon.

Maybe try uninstalling Skype then rebooting ?

If you want Skype try installating it again after that.

My Surface Pro (1st generation) is running Windows 10 and I have it set to update Windows automatically. It's been doing that fine. Recently though I noticed that it always offers me 'Update and shut down' instead of just 'Shut down'. So I let it update. Next time I use the machine and come to shut it down, it makes me update again. And while it's updating, it certainly looks like it's trying to update rather than just shutting down.
According to my Windows Update history, the last successful update was on 15th September. But it's listing no update failures either, which is suspicious.
Anyone got any ideas?

Hello, I am BARELY able to Skype For Desktop on Windows 8.1. Turns out it is not just me what has this issue
For starters it takes Skype several minutes to send and recvive messages as well as the CPU usage varying from 35%-60%(Average is 45-50%) it is also constantly using more than 0.3MB/s disk usage. But now and again Skype will tell me I have revived a messaged when in fact the message it said I revived was sent in Late December. Also it says some people are not on my contact list/ offline when infarct they are on my contact list and are online.

Hello Roland_Walters Welcome to the HP forums. Companies usually install an own preconfigured version of Windows 10, is this also the case with this laptop? As far as I can tell, Skype will run when using Windows 10. What concerns me more are the blue screens.Is there a possibility that I can see the blue screens? You can gather information about blue screens using this tool:http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html Please provide me with the shown error code and message. e.g. DRIVER_NOT_EQUAL 0x0000000This so I can tell if there is something wrong with the hardware. Sometimes the supplied  RAM memory is already bad just out of the manufacturing process. This will cause troubles and blue screens. Winos.

Hi and welcome

First thing I wouold look at is the sound driver on both machines. they are different so when she upgrade win 7 probably didnt install the correct one.
She should. find out what sound card by typing dxdiag in search. after she knows go to the mfr website and download the driver for her machine. Install it re-boot and see what happens.

Good Luck

I had Skype 1.4 on my os/ME. I deleted it due to an updated version Skype 2.
However, when I went to download, it said Skype 2 needs Windows 2000 or XP.
As I have ME, I did not download. Now I am looking through Skype's site for a download of ver 1.4 but can't find it.
Anyone knows where I could locate ver 1.4 ?
Thanks

Can you connect calls, and hear them, just not view? If so, try uninstalling the app and reinstalling it.

I have installed skype to my desktop but it won't connect. I just get a circle that keeps going round.

I looked at the set up, i.e. under properties and its compatibility is with Windows XP, i.e. not with windows 7 (which is what I use). There it says 'run this programme in compatibility mode for...' and it has a drop down arrow for programmes other than windows xp but it is greyed out i.e. inaccessible.
How can I get this function to be accessible?

I don't understand why skype worked with my previous (Toshiba) laptop in windows 7 (same browser, firefox, and McAfee anti viral software) and not in this new Lenovo ThinkPad E550.

I really like the Explorer Frame buttons that Skype uses for their theme and I was wondering, could this be done in Windows 7? I remember when Windows XP came out and how long it took til people were able to write completely resource dependent themes that were customized in every single way possible. Vista also jumped on the wagon later on with it's own Visual Styles with the simple uxtheme patch.

What's the progress with themes and visual styles for Windows 7? I've seen a few themes here and there on Deviant Art but they seem to all be a port of the default Aero theme. Would something like this be possible? A Skype-Like Windows 7 Visual Style?

I just love it so much

A:Skype 4.1 Style for Windows 7

Yeah I feel like its just a matter of time til we'll be able to customize every aspect of Windows 7 Visual Styles.

Just an idea I thought I throw out.

A:Windows 7 BSOD (after started using Skype)

Crashes are being caused by the ShrewSoft VPN Adapter IM Filter Driver. Recommend removing the software completely from the system and then re-installing it fresh with either a fresh download or from the installation media supplied.
If that does not work, have the user uninstall the Symantec security software with a Symantec removal tool; contact Symantec for the appropriate steps for removing the software completely. Then download a fresh copy of the Symantec security software and install it fresh.
I suspect either the VPN software or the Symantec software is corrupted and interfering with the system.

Users recommended to install the previous Skype version

Skype users have recently discovered a bug in the Windows version of the client that breaks down conversations and changes the order of the displayed messages.

Posts on Microsoft?s support forums for Skype reveal that a number of users running the latest version of the Skype for Windows client are seeing a bug that makes their last messages appear above the ones received from their contacts. Here?s how one of the users whose Skype install got impacted by the bug describes the situation:

Hello ,
I have a serious issue with using microphone in windows 10. A few monthes ago i upgraded to windows 10 and i started having problems with skype - i heared people talking to me but they didn't hear what i said in microphone . I'm using usb microphone that is built in a web-cam , and i didn't have such problems before i updated my pc to windows 10. I searched for every possible solution and it didn't work. I saw somewere that i need to disable microphone enhancements , but i don't see the enhancements tab in the options of my microphone , and i don't know what exactly to configure if i have USB microphone. I have russian version of windows 10.
Please help me with this issue , because the only option that i see is to reinstall windows 8 on the computer and i really don't want to deal with it now..

A:problem with microphone and skype in windows 10

Hi, to see enhancements rt click the volume icon on the taskbar, Recording devices and navigate to this.
There are boost options too - 10db and 20db.

You can test your mike using the Voice Recorder. Just type'record' into Cortana's search bar.

Hi FolksIf anyone has an idea of why these 2 programs refuse to install on this DV6 laptop running Win7 and fully protected, I would be very interested to hear from you. There is no problem on my Vista or other Win 7 machines.Skype almost completes but then comes up with various error messages (which unfortunately I don't have with me at the moment) and LIVE almost completes and then says that it couldn't update one component so will abort the whole operation.I have been through the computer and deleted everything related to Skype and have run SFC with nothing showing up.Cheers, Rob

A:Skype and Windows Live Essentials

Turns out this problem was caused by corrupt System Files which Windows couldn't, or wouldn't, fix.

A reinstall did the trick.

I am using windows 7.

A:windows 7 multiple skype accounts

Hello and Welcome to TSF,

You can only be signed into 1 skype account at a time on a computer, now if you have more than 1 computer at your disposal than its a different story. For every computer you have at your disposal than that is the number of times you can be signed into it.

Both of my mics work in windows; I can select them both as the default device and they respond to noise.

In skype, if i select MIC1 and make a noise, skype detects the noise.
However, if I select MIC2 in skype, it doesn't detect any nose.

Only MIC1 works in skype, but not MIC2.

Anyone know a solution?

I've tried re-installing skype and drivers etc. multiple times- didn't work.

We are renting a home in AZ for the winter. It has no landline so we use a Skype number and our laptop. We have had no problems with it in the past 2 years but a few months ago we got a new Dell laptop with Windows 8.1 installed. We can make a call on our Skype phone but we cannot answer a call. We hear the phone ringing but there is no button to press to answer. We checked online and many people are complaining about the same thing. We asked the agent who sold us the computer and he cannot help so.....does anyone know a solution? We cannot even receive voice messages, thank goodness we can retrieve them from the ipad.
Thank you in advance for any advice.
 

A:Solved: Windows 8.1 and Skype Phone

If you are using the Desktop application, which seems to be the same as for previous Windows versions, I cannot help as I don't have a Skype number and, hence, have never received calls.

If you are using the Store App I suggest that you download and install the Desktop Skype and try that (with the other App not running).

A lightblue screen appears  with messages and hen the OS is restarted. i've tryed to uninstall and re-install the skype software but the result is always the same. Before he Windows 10 upgrade the proBook was running with Windows 8 and skype was working correctly.The pro book has already been fixed two monts ago (under warranty) by HP for not working ethernet board and wi-fi board.Is there a solution at this problem? I need skype for my job, this is my job laptop.I've bought the PC 3 months ago and it is already the second very big problem I'm experiencing.Is this a unlucky laptop or what else?please help me to solve the problem. Andrea
