Skype icon dissapeared from my task bar. Can't find the programme on my comuter.

Only when somebody calls me directly or someone from my listed people goes on-line does a pop-up window appear and only then do I have a chance to access my skype account!!! What happened? Till this morning I had a skpye icon on my task bar! I just had to click on it to get to my skpye account. How do I get the skype icon back?

This widget could not be displayed.

Can you start Skype from Windows Start -> All programs -> Skype?

No. I can't open it like that. When I open window -- all programmes --- there's no skype...!?... But when I check the software on my PC, then I get a mention of skype 5.10 plus Click to call.... So where did the software go?

Just re-installing Skype also worked for me.
