Try to reset skype settings
Exit Skype : From the system tray >> right click on the skype icon and click "Quit Skype"
Click Start >> Run Type: %appdata% Rename folder "Skype" to "Old_Skype"
Note: You will need your password to re-log on, and re-set any options from default
I was able to follow your instructions on my Win 7 laptop but when going to %appdata% on my wife's Win 8 desktop there is no Skype folder. Is that possibly located in a different location or does Skype for Win 8 use a different method of registering?
