Skype crashing as soon as it opens up and comes up with skype is not responding

I have a problem where when I open skype on one Windows 7 with SP1 installed it askes me to log into the program but then brings up a not responding window and Skype closes.

 

I have had a look all over to see if I can find a fix for this and so far I have tried uninstalling the program and reinstalling it. I have removed the Skype folder form the pc and I have also tried logging into the pc and skype as different users but I still get the same problem. If I log into skype on a different pc as my user it works fine but not on this pc.

 

Hope someone can help as I have not managed to find a fix for this problem.

Open Windows Event Viewer -> Custom Views -> Administrative Events. Look for any recent error messages with a timestamp corresponding to Skype crash.
