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.)

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. Always busy.

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.

For some reason I am now unable to use Skype. I used it a week ago without problem except that it was very slow to load. I now get a message that it is an incompatible programme. I am using Windows 10 with the latest updates (I think). I might add that I have been away for a week when my computer was never switched on. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I use Skye for contacting relatives abroad, Regards Carper

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.

You might see if creating a new shortcut for it directly from the .exe file of Skype may work instead.

I have WIN 7 and Skype 7.12.0.101
The other side hears noise, it seems only after he\she speaks, and the noise goes on for about 30 seconds, during which they hardly hear me. then the noise diminishes.
I am hearing them, most of the times, good.
I upgraded Skype on my old computer with XP and the same problem occured.
I tried talking with 2 different persons in different countries and the same problem.
I attach the Dxdiag zip file. i followed the instructions on Skype's site for creating log files:
https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA1...eate-log-files
I ran the Logging-on file that i downloaded but it didn't make any entry.
Is there any other possibility than installing an older version of Skype? and how should i install it, should i just create, manually, an entry in the All Programs list pointing to the Skype.exe file or should i run the setup file? i heard it makes problems

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 4.2.0.169 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 5.1.0.104 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.

A:skype keeps freezing

Hey, servers using were probably extra busy, if this happens all the time, you may have a faulty install of Skype somehow, and at that point, i would do a reinstall of Skype to see if that alleviates that issue.

The reason we ask this or do not respond to your requests is because that would remove you from the active queue that Techs and Staff have access to. 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. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.That is why I have made an edit to your last post, instead of a reply. Please do not multiple post here, as that only pushes you further down the queue and causes confusion to the staff.Please be patient.

I have both on my Windows 10 pc and only Skype Preview seems to actually work. What's really weird is I can't find much about either online, so I'm not even sure if Messaging + Skype is being continued or even still functional. Does it require a companion phone app to work? (I use Android). Messaging + Skype can't seem to find any of my Skype contacts while Skype Preview can.
Just really confused on how barebones and non-functional this all seems, even after some Googling. Can anyone shed some light for me?

I have tried everything imaginable to get rid of these two.  I can delete Skype via 
control panel, but it comes back and re-installs itself.  
Click to call will not go away.  When I try to use the control panel I get a message that 
says, "close Chrome browsers to uninstall".   I've tried doing that and still get that same message.
I've even uninstalled Chrome and re-installed it with the same result.
These two are like a bad dream.   
Any help with completely deleting both would be appreciated.

Not so much a software support question, but this is the best I could figure it'd go into... but if I have an Office 365 subscription that includes 60 minutes of Skype calling a month, do I still need to purchase a Skype number so people can call me and for people to know who's calling them?

I tested it out as it is right now and when I call my dad's phone, says "Unknown caller."

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.

Has anyone any ideas why the computer screen freezes when using Skype with webcam? Only re-boot solves the problem, but it re-occurs each time a video voip call is made to a Skype contact.
 

A:Skype freezing computer

Try disabling your firewall and/or antivirus software when making a video call. Also make sure you have enough memory installed since video applications are generally considered to be memory hogs.

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!

I've just added a 2GB stick of Hynix 800MHz, DDR2 RAM to my laptop. Works like a charm, and Windows Memory Diagnostics say nothing's wrong with it.

Laptop works 5x faster now, and all programs open and work nicely, except for Skype. The moment I open it, it stops responding and freezes on the loading screen forever until I crash it.

This makes no sense to me, what's the least destructive way to fix this? Could it be my new RAM causing this?

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.
 

A:Skype freezing up and locking my computer up

Which version of Skype do you have?.
I have windows 8.1 and absolutely hated Skype for windows 8 so i permanently deleted it (it was crashing etc and i did not like how you navigated through it) .
Now i have installed skype for windows 7 and all works beautifully.

here is how i did it encase you want to try .
Delete skype for windows 8.

go to this link and follow the instructions

http://beta.skype.com/en/download-skype/skype-for-windows/downloading/

job done.

This could be a last resort if you can't resolve your issue , or something to try to pinpoint if it is skype or something else.

Alright so I ve got a problem I m new around these parts and things are getting dicey and Skype Computer Acting Blue Screens, Up Freezing and frustrating for me I m running a Toshiba satellite lap top I ve had it for about a year now an older model that I got around last Christmas actually 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 Blue Screens, Computer Freezing and Skype Acting Up the problems seem to be back I thought that they were simply the laptop over heating but I get them even when I m using a lap fan so I doubt that is the problem really 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 going to because Skype won t let me access the control panel video chat interface while I m in it 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 it was graphics card or driver related Sometimes the whole computer will seize up - through and through - but generally it will only last for a few moments before coming back then seizing up for a few more minutes - then back for a few hours before problems return Freezing to the point on occasion that num-lock has frozen as well I ve dealt with these problems a great deal before but generally they only were for a few moments after I started the computer - now they re not when I start it up that is usually when it works best but they start coming on after about an hour or so Running multiple programs can be a problem for it it will start to run slightly slower I do have the latest drivers for my computer I believe But what I m thinking and maybe some of you guys would know better could it be something to do with power allotment or perhaps the GPU If anyone has any ideas please let me know I d rather resolve this at home but if I have to take it to someone I will Just let me know what you guys think and what might help Many thanks in advance - PanzerWarrior

I was trying to set up skype and used my Microsoft account details as it suggested (which we use on our PC but have never used on the phone). I never did get skype app working, but after all that, the phone contact list has disappeared - it's just empty. The shortcut tiles to people on the home screen have also disappeared.
How to get it back? I got online and removed the phone from the Microsoft accounts list. But then it said to reset the phone, which I don't want to do as it warned that all pictures/data/personalisation would be removed?
How can I get the contacts list back?

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.

My provider BT has checked all hub settings and network seems fine.

I don't understand what are the benefits of using UWP vs desktop apps (like Viber and Skype) and having two versions installed on my PC seems a bit strange.

A:Should I use Skype UWP or Skype Desktop app on my PC?

The future is the UWP app. It will be replacing the desktop app. Benefits are notification integration and security.
I would go with the new app. It appears to work well here as a preview, and only expect it to get better.

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.

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.

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? :-)

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.

This might not be in the right forum but whatever.
So I had skype on my computer ever since I first got it ( a few months ago ) and now for some reason it decides not to work. I turned my computer on and clicked on it and it didn't come up. 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?

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.

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 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.

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.


P.S I have tried Skype on other machines and it works just fine.

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.

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

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: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.

Possible to log in with alternate account in skype for win 8?

Says you have to create new windows account. Now I end up using the desktop app which I dont actually want to use as I have paid for the Metro UI.

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

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

A reinstall did the trick.

Cheers

I just upgraded our computer to Windows 8, but it crashes during a Skype session. I installed the W8 desktop version of Skype, not the app version. I need the small window on top of the screen, and this is only possible with the desktop version, not with the Windows 8 app version!!

I already reinstalled Skype, but the problem persists.

I attached the SF file for analysis.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!!

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

Hi

Skype on 8.1 is driving me bonkers. When I look in the task manager->start up its not listed.

However, I then get messages and calls - so it must be running

Of course, with the tile version there are no settings that I can find to turn the darn thing off and it doesn't appear in the system tray.

How can I please take control over skype so that it launches when I want it to?

Thanks

Edward

A:windows 8.1 and skype auto start up

You could uninstall the Windows 8 app (right click on the start screen select Uninstall) and download the desktop version if you prefer. Download Skype for Windows

I prefer the desktop version personally.
