Fatal Error?!

Anytime I try to open Skype, I get a "Fatal Error" saying, "Failed to load library 'd3d9.dll'". What does this mean and how do I fix it?

Good catch! :happy:  Thank you for pointing out that in my instruction on how to contact Skype Customer Service that the blue "Send" button has been replaced with a green Next button, and that to file an e-mail request, we click "Send."
