2 days ago, I could not run skype. The computer said skype was blocked from accessing the internet. However, the icon in the toolbar shows that the skype is connecting. I am just a computer user and don't know much about technique. Does someone help me? my computer is Lenovo with Window7, Norton Security version 22.214.171.124 and Skype 5.8.
Actually, the skype version is 6.1 but I have restored to 5.8.
anxiously look forward to having your response.
Solved! Go to Solution.
According to my previously thanks and message that to disable Norton Firewall is workable, but when I closed the computer and startrd it again. It still says that Skype was blocked from accessing the internet again. And I have to disable firewall again. Do I have to repeat it everytime that I turn on the computer?
You don’t need to disable the Firewall. This was just a test to see if the issue is due to this Firewall. However, you need to configure this Firewall to allow Skype.
