I had Skype installed & working, then received update a few days ago that automatically installed. It got half way through then stopped with message that said it could not complete installation because I did not have Admin. privileges. I DO! and it was working up to that point. From that point on it no longer worked. I tried to reinstall it but it would not. I uninstalled everything and tried a clean install. I now get the message: "The installer has insufficent privileges to access this directory C:\Programdata\Microsoft\Windows\Start menu\Programs\Skype and says to log on as Administrator. I already am. I am the Administrator & have no problems installing any other software.
Solved! Go to Solution.
There is NO Skype in any of these folders. Because I could not get Skype to work ever since it automatically updated itself & even after a reinstall, I uninstalled it & tried a new install. As of now I have no Skype in any folder. That's the problem. I am trying a new install & it won't let me.
BTW, I'm running Windows 7 x64.
