For a while now whenever i launch skype after about 3 secs on it it freezes and shows this
ik it seems weird that i have Skype 6.0 that is only bc i updated it and it did the same thing so i thought if i got an earlier version it would work. I have windows SP3 so idk what is up. Please help !!
Open Windows Event Viewer -> Application and look for the recent error message with timestamp corresponding to Skype crash. Post the description of the error message here.
Have you been looking in Windows Event Viewer for the relevant error message?
ok well i am looking and there are variations of these three messages
and SkypeUpdate service is shutting down due to idle timeout.
Try to reset all Skype settings.
Quit Skype or use Windows Task Manager to kill any Skype.exe process. Go to Windows Start and in the Search/Run box type %appdata% and then press Enter or click the OK button. The Windows File Explorer will pop up. There locate a folder named “Skype”. Rename this folder to something different, e.g. Skype_old.
If you are on the latest Skype 6.5/6.6/6.7/6.9/6.10 version, then do also this:
Go to Windows Start and in the Search/Run box type %temp%\skype and then press Enter or click the OK button. Delete the DbTemp folder.
N.B. If needed, you will still be able to re-establish your call and chat history. All data is still saved in the Skype_old folder.
