Cannot Install Skype

I perform the following steps and can't get skype to install:

 

1. I Download skypesetupfull.exe

2. I click on the I agree – next button at the next screen.

 

Eventually after a please wait while installing message appears, I get an error message:

 

We are having problems connecting to the download server. To download an alternative

installer for skype, click the download button.

 

3. I click download again and receive another file  (skypesetup.exe instead of skypsetupfull.exe).

 

4. I repeat the process again and get the same error message again.

 

Any thoughts on this?
