A few nights ago i was video chatting with one of my friends and the video just vanished and it showed my list of friends as all as a grey question mark. now when i sign in all of them show up this way but one and that person shows up as offline and i know they are on cause they are next to me with it on. so i was wondering what happened and if there is any way to fix it?
i have tried uninstalling twice and reinstalling it and i have even tried setting up a new account but nothing works.

does anyone have any ideas about what is wrong with my skype? could there be another program that blocks something or does my computer jsut not allow skype to work.... i need help.
Try resetting you Skype configuration files via this procedure:
Quit Skype. Hold the Windows key and type r. In the box that comes up type %appdata% <enter>. Scroll down to find the \Skype folder and rename it something like \Skype_old. Restart Skype and see if your contacts are back to normal.
Note: Renaming the Skype folder will move IM and call history to the renamed folder. They can be recovered with a few extra steps.
Im having trouble too but with importing contacts with facebook, I use a pinned account on facebook for security protection and to keep my account from getting hacked but skype won't import from a pinned account off of facebook cause it don't give you a place to enter the pin you get from facebook to log on to it. So what do I do now? I know go punt skype in the wild blue yonder.
Suddenly it started to happen that when I login with my account all my contacts disappear. I have tried doing the thing suggested above (going to "appdata" and renaming Skype folder) but all I did with that was to reset my Skype settings because all contacts remained gone.
Apparently, they can still see me as I was messaged before by an invisible contact.
Anyone knows how to solve this?
