So I just got a brand new Windows HP Pavilivon g series and I had skype working for about a week I could do everything that Skype offered. Just a couple weeks ago it started acting weird. I wasn't able to type a new status. At first I thought it was fine so I turned my computer off then tried again, to no avial. Then the problem got worse. I couldn't do anything. I would try to chat someone, change something on my profile, call someone, answer a call, or anything else a screen would pop up saying "Skype has stopped working. Windows is checking for a solution. A problem has caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is avalible." Then Skype would close. I waited a week still nothing. I had already tried to redownload Skype many times but no use. The weird thing is that on my other computer Skype is working fine.
1. Ensure that "Show hidden files and folders" is switched on.
Click Start and then Run Type "control folders" and click OK. In the View tab, ensure that Show hidden files and folders is enabled
2. Exit Skype : From the system tray >> right click on the skype icon and click "Quit Skype"
3. Click Start >> Run Type: %appdata% Rename folder "Skype" to "Old_Skype"
4. Re-run Skype
Check if the issue persists
