LInks in chat not working

Links that people send me are not opening up. I don't get an error, no warnings, I don't get anything. The chat window blinks once or twice, and then nothing happens. Can anyone help? I've been looking for a solution for several days. I have the latest version.

Try This.

 

Here is a Mr. FixIT:

 

How to reinstall or repair Internet Explorer in Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP

 

Click the Run Now button.

 

Temporary disable the anti-virus & Do all Windows Updates, including Software and Hardware, not just the Critical Updates. In most cases, this will resloves the issue.

 

Reboot your computer.

 

Also Suggest, Download and Reinstall the new Skype 5.7 beta version. See if it helps.

If not resolve this issue, then

 

Please do a Skype reset:

 

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

Which browser is set as your default? Can you open the same link if you copy/paste it to the address field of your browser?

My Im chat does broken doesn't work at all!

I can get others peoples im chat ok BUT  when I type anything or send emotion icon etc it does not leave the chat box or the get it their end etc. But files send does work

 Also screen share when they see mine their end it only small  percentage all this is  very frustrating I do a lot of conference calls.

My skype some how has become corrupt only on my laptop  It started when I recall I removed a few other programs and since then it has played up! 
NOTE it  is fine when I log on using other pcs and also when someone logs on mine using their skype name again they cannot also send im chat etc!

I have  tried removing then reinstalling  skype 10 times even went into the reg directory and also took out all left over skype elements AND  done c clean on my pc and still no joy. I do not want to do a reformat of my laptop just over skype issue.

Anyone got some ideas?

Re: My Im chat does broken doesn't work at all!

i have a similar problem since mid march.

 

my chat window is blank. i know it's getting sent, because i can read them in "chat history" or i will get notifications on top corner of screen of incoming messages, but my chat window is always blank. 

 

i know that whatever i type is being sent successfully since i get replies back. i've done the re-installing of newest versions. skype assistant stopped messaging me back after a week. still waiting for a resolution.

 

thanks skype.
