Skype is disappearing after logging in

Hi,

 

After loggin in to Skype- the process is normal, i put my login and password, and click enter >> than I see its processing, and after 10 seconds it disappears and than i see the icon on the toolbar next to the clock >> whe I try to launch it from there, and my cursor is on the icon it disappears completely 

I dont see it my my Task Manager, I tried to reinstall Skype few times, I tried to disable my security agent - nothing helps. 

I use Windows XP , which has been formated lastly - and all the rest of programs are working properly. 

 

Thank you for your help.

Re: Skype is disappearing after logging in

You might try disabling your anti-virus / firewall temporarily to see if that will let Skype start properly.   

 

If that doesnt' help, I'd suggest a "complete" uninstall then reinstall following the steps here:
