No login fields when skype starts

I've installed Skype on my Windows 7 computer, and when it starts, it only shows a blue background inside the window. There are no login/password entry fields.  I've tried to reinstall and restart several times, but nothing works.

Re: No login fields when skype starts

This is a well known problem related to your Internet Explorer not being able to execute JavaScript.

 

Please, answer first these questions:

 

What version of Windows are you on? Is it 32-bit or 64-bit?

 

Go to Windows Start and in the Search box type winver.exe and then press Enter.

 

What is the version of Internet Explorer installed on your computer?

 

In Internet Explorer go to Help -> About Internet Explorer

The problem is with your Internet Explorer and JavaScript.

In Internet Explorer go to Help -> About Internet Explorer.

 

P.S. Please, don’t say that you are not using Internet Explorer. This is irrelevant. Skype depends on Internet Explorer.
