Cant no longer use skype on my laptop, Disconnections, freezes, crashes, etc

this has been happening for about a month or so


basically skype will refuse to work for longer than 5 minutes, here's an example of what happens everytime i try to use skype on my laptop


-i enter my account

-i can call talk for about 3 minutes and then skype crashes, no the program itself, but i can no longer move anything, i can make calls but i can´t hang up, it just freezes

-when i restart skype, i can no longer access my account because apparently i'm still logged in


what "solutions" i've tried:

-restarting is useless, the same thing will just happen again

-closing all the extra skypes from taskmanager

-using multiple accounts (i have 4 now, and i cant use any of those btw)

-deleting skype stuff from the appdata folder

-trying skype for windows 8, samething


now im doomed to use skype on my celphone, and i really dont like it because i have a $150 headset just sitting there because i cant use it on my celphone


i've reinstalled it so many times, please help
