Skype does not install correctly

I have windows vista 32-bit and for some reason I can not get skype to install on my cmputer correctly. I get as far as choosing to install bing bar and making msn my homepage. After I choose what to/not to install the bing bar it says that it is installing an then it just stops as if it is complete. When I try to open skype from the desktop icon, it says fatal error installing. I hae tried just about everything, including unistalling and reinstalling (also earlier versions).

Re: Skype does not install correctly

Here is a Mr. FixIT


Program Install and Uninstall troubleshooter


Click the Run Now Button. and remove any skype entries.


Re-download Skype


Start the software installation


Make sure that the Windows Installer service is set to Automatic.


Also, Clear the Temp folder and check if it helps you install the Skype.
