A few months back, I had "updated" to skype but then didn't like it so I had uninstalled it and redownloaded messenger before it went out.
I tried downloading skype awhile back though, and it won't let me. It says that the previous installation didn't finish. I had logged in and everything though the previous time I had installed skype.
I've tried googling solutions and people keeping saying to reboot the computer but I feel that isn't the only solution?
Try to install the currently latest Skype 220.127.116.11 version using this msi-installer:
