Try to reset skype settings
Exit Skype : From the system tray >> right click on the skype icon and click "Quit Skype"
Click Start >> Run Type: %appdata% Rename folder "Skype" to "Old_Skype"
Note: You will need your password to re-log on, and re-set any options from default
Didn't fix anything still crashing after 30-45sec after logging in, but if this helps I get a message when I log in about the Extras Manager saying an unexpected responses from the server received. Do you want to send a problem report to customer support service?
