SKYPE DISAPPEARS

The last few days I fine my SKYPE file is not on the computer when I start it up.  I download it again.  The program works fine, but then when I come back onto the computer the SKYPE file box is empty.  This just started in the last few days. I am tired of downloading again and again. System is XP with whatever the lastest IE is available.  Suggestions?

thanks.                                                   dnb

Re: SKYPE DISAPPEARS

What do you mean by that “Skype file box is empty”? Don’t you anymore see the shortcut on your desktop? Can you see the file Skype .exe in C:\Program Files\Skype\Phone\?

Re: SKYPE DISAPPEARS

My Skype itself disappears

1. the icon at the top of my page and in my start menu ...And in my programs- skype disapears.

2. I then install it again, but after some weeks it again disappears

MY PROBLEM NOW, IS THAT I COUDN'T INSTALL MY SKYPE AGAIN AFTER ITS MOST RECENT DISAPAPEARANCE, BUT  I HAD TO REGISTER AGAIN, USING A NEW USERNAME... iT ISN'T THAT BIG A PROBLEM, AS I AM USING GOOGLE+ MORE OFTEN, AS OTHERS SIGN UP FOR IT.

Re: SKYPE DISAPPEARS

I have that problem too! I've had Skype for over a year on this computer and it has always worked fine until last week everything disappeared. I can't find Skype anywhere! It's not on my start menu, taskbar, or desktop. I checked all my files and programs in my computer but there is no Skype. I didn't delete it or anything, but it just disappeared, and when I tried to download it again (about 5 times), the Skype setup says an error occured because I already have the same version of Skype on my computer or something

Anyone help me? Thanks.
