Skype won't open for Windows 8

Whenever I open Skype it asks me to run in the background and use speakers and camera and stuff then it loads for a while and says Oops...There was a problem please restart or try again.

I'm running Windows 8 x64 (not pro or enterprise just regular) and it never even asks for login I just get that error. I've tried reinstalling but that didn't work. Please help.
