Re: Can't sign in.

This is a temporary solution only, but you can try.

 

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\ folder. If you have 64-bit Windows then it should be 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\Phone\Skype.exe" (or with (x86) if you are on 64-bit Windows). 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\Phone\Skype.exe" /legacylogin

 

Click OK to save the changes. Start Skype using this new shortcut. Can you now login to Skype?

Re: Can't sign in.

I am currently having a problem with skype signing in. Recently I was asked to upgrade and after the upgrade I could not sign in. Normally it automatically signs in. I manually inputted the password but still without success. I am sure of the password because I can login on the skype web page. Can someone help me to solve this problem.

What Firewall and Antivirus applications are installed on your computer?

You need to configure McAfee’s Firewall to allow Skype traffic or completely disable it.
