Skype Update and now won't load

Yesterday i used Skype and at the end of my call, I clicked to install the new update.  Today I go to use it and it just sits and tries to load/sign-in, and nothing happens...the little arrow just slowly spins and spins.

 

I'm running Windows XP on a desktop.  Current version of DirectX installed.  I use Google Chrome. Everything is up-to-date.  Why can't I run Skype today?
