Cannot install skype

I erased my hard disk, installed again the Windows XP version 2002 with pack service 3, I downloaded the skype normally. But I have a problem to INSTALL, I tried several time, but always crashed at the end of the installation, the computer switchs off and reinciate without the complete installation, the Skype icon is there, but the program does not appear in the list of installed programs

Re: Cannot install skype

Try using this link to download the full installer to your hard drive:

 

http://www.skype.com/go/getskype-full

 

Run the file when the download is complete to see if that works any better for you.
