Cannot sign in.

Hi, I am having issues signing into skype at all, It loads for about 4-6 minutes and then just fails the connection.

My internet is working fine and Skype is working fine on any other computers I have, Any ideas?

Re: Cannot sign in.

What Firewall and Antivirus applications are installed on your computer?

Try to disable Avast Firewall.

Re: Cannot sign in.

The same connection problem has happened with me, and the internet is working fine. It loads for a while then says 'Skype can't connect' and it's been doing that every time I try to log in for about 2 months now.

Please help.

 

P.S My firewall is Norton 360

Turns out Mcafee messed with my firewall, Got it working by turning off the firewalls.

Thanks!

Re: Cannot sign in.

Norton 360 is managing my firewall and I haven't a clue on how to change the settings because I know it must be why I can't sign in. I've tried following about 4 sets of instructions from people that sound like they've had the same problem as I have and nothing has worked so I think I will take my laptop to PC World / Currys this week because I need my Skype!!!!!!!!!
