Can't install Skype?

I had Skype before, like atleast a week ago, then suddenly it just stopped, I uninstalled and tried to reinstall again but whenever it's nearly done install I get a message saying "Error: Unfortunately the Skype executable is corrupted. Please re-install."

I've tried reinstalling many times now, even from different places and older versions of Skype but I still always get this. What's wrong with my installation? Is there any way to fix it? Thanks.

Also sorry if this question is posted in the wrong place, it's my first post.
