Skype Can't Connect

I just updated my Skype to the newest version. Before I did this it was working just fine and I had a video chat with my friend. Now that I got the new updated version, it isn't working at all and not connecting.

 

I tried Uninstalling and Installing again, but nothing happened. I get the notice that Skype can't connect. Please help me and give me any advice as to how I can fix this.

Re: Skype Can't Connect

What Firewall and Antivirus applications are installed on your computer?

Do a complete uninstall of McAfee.
