It used to, until out of the blue on friday night. Nothing changed about my computer. I have restarted it three times, and completelt shut it down. The firewalls are not blocking it, and there is nothing wrong with my connection. I reset my password and made sure that wasn't the issue, it's not just my account. I've tried re-installing skype twice and I have no idea what is wrong. I am desperately looking for an answer to the question of what is wrong with my skype.
