Having Many Problems With Skype

I have Skype for Windows 7. The first problem I have is when I change my icon, the next time I sign on it's changed back to the old one. The next one I have is the statuses for my friends do not update. AS of today my Skype home does not load at all. I have tried installing and re-installing skype. I also got a new laptop for Christmas, downloaded Skype, signed in, same problems. :/  Can ANYONE help me?

Re: Having Many Problems With Skype

Which icon are you referring to?
Which version of Internet Explorer installed on your PC?
What is the type of internet connection you are using?
Do you have any security software installed on the computer?
Did a Free-trial antivirus come preinstalled on the computer when you bought it?


Make sure your connection status is set to online.
