"Skype has stopped working"

I use skype on a daily basis and all of a sudden I cannot make calls or chat with other skype members.  A few seconds after I sign in I get a thing that says, "Skype has stopped working."  I have uninstalled and reinstalled it 3 times and I keep getting the same thing.

I to am having this problem. 

 

I use skype on a daily basis to call and see my boyfriend. We both are having this issue and are both very frustrated. We have tried to uninstall and reinstall nothing works. I would like this problem resolved and if it is not I will find a new service to use...

Re: "Skype has stopped working"

I've been having the same problem with the "skype has stopped working" as soon as a video call has been answered.  Also, the last time i used skype i got a weird call from a "Skype Help" or something like that that seemed like spam. I wonder if that's related to the problem....I surely hope this is not permanent! HELP!!

Re: "Skype has stopped working"

I think Microsoft is purposely doing this to encorage everyone to get paid membership. No quick support for "free" users. Microsoft is a money-greedy empire as you all know. This never happned before Microsoft took over. God bless Skype
