Re: Problem with skype install in windows xp

I have Windows XP set for auto updates from Microsoft. Today the auto update attempted to install Skype 5.10 for Windows (KB2727727). The installation failed. I went to the download suggested in "Solution" - and the installation failed. The error message for the failure stated that I had another version installed. Which, of course, is the case whenever you have an update. Is there any way to install this update without completely removing Skype?  I don't want to loose everything stored in the program and start over again.

Uninstalled version 5.8 and reinstalled version 5.10 using suggested site: http://www.skype.com/go/getskype-full. It worked. It doesn't look like I lost anything. Thanks. I'd click on the "Accept as Solution" button, but I don't see one on this page. George Fillinger
