Preferred Solution: Problem with SKYPE update

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.)

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

Unable to install the latest Skype, I installed version 4. That works well. But when I try to update it, I get the following exciting message -

"The Installer has insufficient privileges to modify this file: C:\programdata\skype\apps\login\

End quote

Has anyone a fix for this. The laptop is a friends and it is running Vista Home Premium.

Today Skype opened itself and updated itself whilst I was AFK.

I have it set to manual update only, plus at the time Skype wasn't even running.

Additionally the SkypeUpdate service in Task Manager is also stopped.

This also happened in my partner's Win 7 machine, and looking at the Skype forum, to several other people too.

My question is how did it manage to do this and how can I prevent it happening again in the future?

BTW, this is the desktop version on Win8, not the app version.

I use Skype you can get from Skype.com; it's not Skype Preview that comes with Windows 10. That's junk, in my not so humble opinion.

I attempted to upgrade Skype from version 7.25.0.103, but got so far and was told "The specified account already exists." Next, I was told the upgrade failed. I tried at least four times, rebooted system, etc., but nothing worked.






I had nothing to lose, so I then uninstalled Skype and reinstalled it. Once that was done, I looked and was up to version 7.25.0.104, but I knew 7.25.0.106 was out there waiting for me. So, I checked for updates, was told there were updates to be had, so, with a very reluctant mouse, I clicked and . . .

Whew, I am now up to version 7.25.0.106!

Has this happened to anyone else, or is it something I alone have experienced?

Hello everyone. Recently I tired to update Skype and failed to do so as I got error 1603 and it said it failed to remove the older version of Skype. After receiving this error multiple times, I decided to try to manually uninstall Skype and then reinstall the latest version. However when trying to do so, I received this error message: 
 
"The installed product does not match the installation source(s). Until a matching source is provided or the installed product and source are synchronized, this action can not be performed."
 
I have never encountered this error before upon trying to uninstall something so I really have no idea what to do. If anyone can offer assistance with this I would greatly appreciate it!

Damnist thing, trying to install an update to Skype, but it won't install amd keeps telling me that I need to give it administration permission. But I am the administrator, also I saved the dl'd update and gave it admin rights, but that didn't help. And when looking for the pathway in the alert, there was no Start Menu under Windows??? Maybe you can help.

Trojan masquerades as Skype updateBy Joris EversStaff Writer, CNET News.comPublished: October 17, 2005, 5:01 PM PDT Cybercriminals are spreading a malicious Trojan horse under the guise of an update to Skype, e-mail security firm MessageLabs said Monday. The Trojan horse, a variant of IRCbot, arrives in an e-mail purporting to be an update to Skype, the popular Internet telephony application. Once opened the malicious software displays a phony installation error message. It then blocks access to security updates and installs a back door on computers, MessageLabs said in a statement.news.com

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.

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

Update to Skype 6.6. the Webcam disappeared. not visible in device Manager. multiple Downloads of web cam Drivers don't execute. checked bios. Rebooted machine multiple times.

What to do to install web cam Software again?

A:Satellite R630-14J - after Skype update web cam has disappeared

Hi

To be honest I cannot understand why webcam device disappears from device manager list after skype update.
I mean even if there would be a software problem (compatibility issues), the webcam should be listed in device manager even as an unknown device.

However, by default, certain devices are not shown in the list. To include hidden devices in Device Manager display, click View and select Show Hidden Devices.

However, I assume you are using Win 7 system.

> multiple downloads of webcam drivers don't execute
On Toshiba EU driver page you can find the webcam software.
Maybe new Skype version damage something in registry. Would recommend uninstalling the Skype firstly. Download and install the repair tool like CCleaner. Clean registry and reboot the notebook. Now try to install the webcam software once again. Reboot the unit and check if you can use the webcam using installed webcam too.

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

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.

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.

Hi I hope someone can help to solve this problem I have Skype version installed on two computers Computer with Skype Problem A is my main desktop computer running Windows Vista I have several years of Skype history saved on this computer Computer B Problem with Skype 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 have completely wiped my chat history on computer A but not on computer B although computer B was the one I was typing on at the time the dual login occurred I tried copying the Application Data Skype folder from computer A to computer B but the history contained in it is still blank I wonder if the history is really blank or whether Skype just isn't reading it correctly any more Does anyone have any ideas about what might have happened or how I could try to fix it I really want to retrieve my chat history from computer A Thanks in advance

Hello,
I have problem with skype.
When I open it and log in it doesn't show like I'm online. I can't even send IM mesages, I only see gray circle on the right side spining :P
Sometimes when I restart it It all works. But most of the time it doesn't
I tried changing port number, reinstaling skype... etc. Nothing helped :P
Also skype.exe can't be killed in TM. I get info that Acess is denied.

I use windows 8 and latest version of skype.

Can someone please help me solve this?
Thank you

A:Skype problem

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...
4. Type %appdata%\skype and click OK.
5. Delete the shared.xml file.
6. Restart Skype. The shared.xml file will be recreated. Skype will start up and work again like normal.

> "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.

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

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

I know skype options allow you to choose your audio settings... Sounds like your audio device is set to a default device when it needs to be set to your realtek.

I usually have no problem with accessing skype, however, for some reason it has decided to stop working and everytime I attempt to log in i get the following message :

skype stopped working
a problem caused the program to stop working correctly.
Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available

I have un-installed and reinstalled Skype and still no luck!

I have no idea what to do and would be extremely grateful for any suggestions.

I have connected up a new Logitech Quickcam (Skype) and downloaded the latest software. When I try to use it on Windows Vista it shows a message"In use by QuickCapture", which I cannot get rid of. It works OK with Windows XP. Can you help?

John Landau

A:Problem with QuickCam for Skype

Hello John

Welcome to TSF

Check in the scanners and cameras area to make sure the device is set as default

Start\Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Scanners and cameras

If its not in there you can manually Add Device

I would also try to use it again and wait until the message comes up,press CTRL+SHIFT+ESC under processes look for QuickCapture.exe or a corresponding program and end process and see if it allows you to use it then

Regards

Having problems with Skype "hearing" me: as soon as I connect to Skype on my old lap top it deselects the microphone recording box and mutes the mic so Skype cannot hear me. When I reselect it and then test with my computer's sound recorder, it works fine. Mic also works fine on desk top.

Any solutions or ideas?

Thanks

A:Solved: Skype problem

Skype mic uses the recording side of windows audio.
For XP,go to start/control panel,sound and audio devices.
Make sure the proper device is selected for recording
then click the volume button.
Click the select box for microphone and set the volume.

Using Vista Business. Cannot recieve video using Skype. All downloads fine and their test functions are all positive. When I call audio only it is fine and my video also looks good but when others turn on their cameras or if I make a video call as soon as they answer with video my screen blinks and error box leave me one choice to end program. Looks like something is blocking incoming video. How do I fix this problem, hope someone can help......Marv

A:Skype video problem

Hi Marv,

1. Click on the Start Orb and then click on Control Panel. (All steps have screenshots below and you can click on any screenshot to enlarge it.)

2. Double click on "Problem Reports and Solutions".

3. Click "See Problems to Check" on the left hand pane. (N.B. Your window will not look exactely the same as mine)

4. Under Skype, click "More Details". I do not have Skype in my list, so substitute my Installer for your Skype.

5. Copy everything in the red box on MY screenshot and paste it into a reply to this thread. Alternatively you could make a screengrab of the whole window and reply with that instead.

How to take a screengrab: How to Use the Snipping Tool in Vista

6. Click "OK".

7. Check "Select All" and "Check again for solutions to other problems" then click "Check for Solutions". If any new solutions are found, particularly for Skype, open them up and see what they say.

8. Make sure you have the latest version of Skype installed.

Go here to download the latest version of Skype: Downloading Skype for Windows - Skype

With that seemingly pointless piece of text nonsence, we may be able to solve your problem!

Hope I can help you,

Hello mates. When i try to download the latest skype version i get the error with the register entry skype detection clsid and then error 1603.


I have been suggested to delete all skype files and install windows install cleanup and find plugin manager of skype, but it doesn't exist.



So, i tried to download older versions - the same problem. Now i use portable version, but i want to fix it... it's annoying.



Thanks for any help... you're my last hope ;(

A:Annoying problem with Skype, which i cant fix

The skype Plugin Manager comes with the Skype installation (I don't think you can download it seperately - but I could be mistaken)

1. Try unistalling skype through Add/Remove programs in Control Panel
2. If 1. does not work you might want to try uninstalling skype with Revo Uninstaller first.
3. If that doesn't work use the Windows Cleanup Tool. You can find the Windows Installer Cleanup Tool here

Then download the newest skype and try to install.

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!

Hi

I recently purchased a new computer with Windows 7 operating system. Since changing I have had continual problems with blue screen computer crashes when I have Skype open on my computer, so I am assuming it must be linked with using skype. Has anyone any idea why this might be happening and what may fix it.

Skype uses port 80 to access the net, so it could be a firewall issue.

Hi,

I am having some problems with Skype. Sometimes when I want to call someone they cant hear me and when they call me I cant answer. When I press the accept button the call ends saying: "Problem with recording device" A shut down solves the problem but a restart does not for some reason

Now, its a laptop and I don't have an external microphone except for the integrated one. Additionally the laptop is connected to an external usb dac so the internal sound card is bypassed.

There are many people online that have similar problems but I cant find a solution that resolves my own problem. I am posting here as a last resort.

Thanks you

Ho hum....

Several issues here. Firstly, when I attempt to download Skype it downloads the installation file just fine. Opening that exe file everything seems good. Uncheck the bing and ie browser crap, accept the license and away we go...and go....and go....and... It never seems to end. It states that Skype is installing and may take a few minutes. Well those minutes roll on for most of the evening.

Secondly, attempting to install using the Skypesetupfull program: Win 10 won't even allow that to happen. I get a message about incompatibility or something.

I have read on various forums that a good many people have had Skype vs Win10 issues, but a clear, concise work around eludes me.

Any takers?

A:..And so on to the problem of installing Skype on Win10

Hi where did you download Skype from?
Have you tried uninstalling it and clearing it from all folders
Even the one on your C DRIVE under all users/ programs and programs 86
Then do a restart
Then go to the store and search
It will come up
Get Skype
That is the way I had to do it on my friends laptop who was having trouble with it
Once installed you can sign in one of 2 ways
Either your Microsoft Account or get a new Skype Account
