Skype App Crashes in Modern UI

I've had skype up and running on windows 8 (modern version) until a recent skype update caused skype to start crashing on its boot up process. I've tried uninstalling through Windows 8 Modern UI and reinstalling other new versions in the store and still have had no luck. Anyone have any advice as to the cause of such a crash?

 

My boot error is as follows:

Spoiler

App <App> crashed with an unhandled Javascript exception. App details are as follows: Display Name:<Skype>, AppUserModelId: <Microsoft.SkypeApp_kzf8qxf38zg5c!App> Package Identity:<Microsoft.SkypeApp_1.6.0.114_x86__kzf8qxf38zg5c> PID:<6204>. The details of the JavaScript exception are as follows Exception Name:<WinRT error>, Description:<Unspecified error

Thanks!

(p.s. desktop version of skype works fine)

I have been having the exact same problems. I do not know how to fix and I have even "Refreshed" my PC and lost all of my programs.
