Windows 8 Skype (not respondin) calls drop out and freezes.

Hey I have tried everything on the other forums and still my skype crashes and calls dont last without constant freezing. I am using the desktop one because the app has the same problem and is annoying to use for video chats. Can someone please help or can Skype make a program that works?

Do you have Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) / Windows Error Reporting services are enabled in your computer?

Are you sure both services are already disabled? Windows error reporting service is enabled by default.

 

Please post event viewer log in your very next reply.

Click Start >> Run >> Type eventvwr.msc /s
Custom Views >> Administrative Events
Look for any error message related to Skype crash.
