Can't use my skype on my windows 7



I've installed skype recently, but now I can't sign in.

The error massage I get is "we can't open skype. You are already signed in on this computer..." even after I have uninstalled and reinstalled the program.. What can I do? I really want to stay in touch with my family and friends..


Thanks in advance

Try to reset skype settings

Exit Skype : From the system tray >> right click on the skype icon and click "Quit"

Click Start >> Run Type: %appdata% Rename folder "Skype" to "Old_Skype"

Re-run Skype

Note: You will need your password to re-log on, and re-set any options from default
