Skype Continuously Crash

Since yesterday I have been having a weird problem, after I login into Skype any action I perform (such as selecting a contact to message or simply switching a tab) it crashes. Prior to this it was working and I had received 9 files from a friend, one file did not complete the transfer and when I logged-off and logged back in it asked me to download the file again and after I clicked no, the problem started.

 

Did anyone have this problem before? I have already reinstalled it several times and cleared my cache.

Re: Skype Continuously Crash

Skype keeps crashing for me as well. I didn't accept any or send any sort of files, it's just been crashing since last night for no reason. I reinstalled it a few times, ran a virus scan, and rebooted my pc, and it's still crashing.

Re: Skype Continuously Crash

I have the exact same problem as you. I log on ok, but when I click on a contact, or try to message them, skype would crash. Although I dont' know about the file transfer because for me it was working fine until one moment it just crashed and the problem started. I find it helpful to go to Start>run>%appdata%\skype> and delete the shared.xml file, and skype would work again. But after a while skype would start crashing again and I have to go delete the xml file again, which is a hassel...

Re: Skype Continuously Crash

You do not need to uninstall, what you have, simply install over, what you have, with this:

 

At the moment the quickest method to fix this is to install the beta version from here: http://skype.com/go/getskype-beta
