Downloading Skype 5.5 on a Windows 7 Laptop

Hi all

I've recently bought a HP Laptop with Windows 7 installed on it.

I have Been trying to download it for a while now.

I have tried 3 seperate Installers, Updated my software and looked on most of these help post's to find my solution. But to no avail.

I really need some help with this.

 

What happens is this: I open up the downloader and it begins to download saying "initialising download" for a while, then it will start to steadily download the file.

Then without any provocation it will stop downloading completely and then start again on 0% saying it is initialising the download.

 

If anyone has any ideas how to help it will be appreciated. I dont know much about the computer itself hardware wise or screen resolution wise but ive given you all the information i know of.

Re: Downloading Skype 5.5 on a Windows 7 Laptop

Skype took money from my account that was not due until April, this is the second time they did this. I can't find how to call them, can't find how to e-mail them. I'm trying to cancel my account doing things as this is not a good sign to do business with them, I also have a free trial the I can't contact them to cancel. Good luck to you guys still using them calling my bank after the money post

What exactly happens when you are trying to start Skype? Any error message?
