error with skype on window 8 computer

I have just got a new laptop with windows 8.  I am having difficulty setting up skype.  An error keeps appearing when i try to install it.  The error code that appears is 0x80073cf9.  Does anyone know how to sort this or what the problem is.

Thanks

go to C:\Windows\AUInstallAgent Properties and Give full permissions to your Microsoft Account User ID.
