Every time I try to download Skype I get error message 2738. I have tried downloading it through Mozilla, Google Chrome, and Internet Explorer. I have also tried downloading the full version. What can I try next?
Solved! Go to Solution.

Please check for other errors as well.
If you are using Win7 Please try this:
Open Windows Event Viewer. Go to Custom Views -> Administrative Events. Look for the recent error messages. Click on any errors and post the details here if they happen at the time things fail.
Otherwise do this:
Using your Windows Control Panel:
Adminstrator Tools -> Event Viewer
Click on System and later Applications, do you see any errors logged during the times this happens, if so what errors ("If you click on the errors you can get more details and copy/paste them here")?
Also, please check times after you reboot to see if any errors are produced when you system is restarting.
Are you current with ALL Windows Updates and any Updates from your manufacturers web site for your system and any attached devices?
