The same problem.
Win8 CP x64
IE 10.0.8250.0 - Consumer Preview
Look here for an appropriate solution.
Be careful with selecting the correct procedure corresponding to your Windows system and the version of Internet Explorer. In your case try to use the procedure designed for Windows 7 64-bit and IE9.

I've done these steps before(regsvr32 failed with jscript.dll). My problem is harder than I expected. I think it's KIS 2013 to blame, because he's written his DLL instead of original one here:
Even after uninstalling KIS the key was on its place, and the most interesting thing: I can't replace KIS DLL with original (some sort of writing error). That's probably not connected with skype, because even IE10 doesn't execute javasripts.
I don’t have any experience with Windows 8 but maybe you can try to uninstall IE10 and install IE9. Installation of IE9 may correct registrations of jscript.dll and jscript9.dll.
Quit Skype. Make sure that you don’t see any Skype.exe processes in Windows Task Manager. If necessary, then stop these processes. Open C:\Program Files (x86)\ folder. Find the Skype folder and then Phone. Right click on the Skype.exe file and select: Send to – Desktop (create shortcut). Right click on the newly created shortcut and select Properties and then the Shortcut tab. In the Target field you will see now: "C:\Program Files\Skype (x86)\Phone\Skype.exe". Click with your mouse on the text in the Target field and move your curser one space after the last quotation sign and add the text /legacylogin. The text in the Target field should now read:
"C:\Program Files\Skype (x86)\Phone\Skype.exe" /legacylogin
Click OK to save the changes. Start Skype using this new shortcut.

Installing IE9 was my first thought, but I followed all manuals, but I didn't manage to do this.
And yeah, thanks for advice, now skype is alive, but as you said "Skype home" page don't work (it's loading and loading...), maybe something else...
I found a lot of KIS remains in registry, will try to cope with this problem
windows vista 32 bit and IE9
Go to Windows Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Right click on Command Prompt, select 'Run as administrator'.
The Command Prompt window should show:
If this is not the case, then in the Command Prompt type: cd c:\windows\system32 and press Enter.
Type this and then press Enter:
Next type this and press Enter:
After each Enter you should receive a message saying that DllRegisterServer in XXX.dll succeeded.
Reboot your computer.
Open in your Internet Explorer (no other browser but only IE) this page:
Click on the “Simply Click This Button” button and watch the response.
