Skype keeps crashing (Even after an uninstal and reinstal)

I start up Skype and go to click someone to chat with and it stops working. I closed, uninstalled then reinstralled the program and it keeps doing it. The longest i can get it to stay up for before it closes is 5 or 6 mins.

 

I have tried to fix the problem myself by downloading a ZIP file to report the issue. (Logging-on-off) which contained 2 folders (logging-on & logging-off). I ran the file logging-on then opened Skype. When Skype crashed i opened the file Logging-off.

 

So now I'm stuck and i don't know what to do. PLEASE HELP MY BUSINESS RELIES ON SKYPE

It's not just you. I'm having the same exact problem today too. And with uninstall/reinstall. Hopefully we'll get a response soon.

Same thing here. I've reinstalled it and tried different things but as soon as I try to type a message to someone it crashes.

Re: Skype keeps crashing (Even after an uninstal and reinstal)

Well it does seem to be working now...

 

Does Skype give out free credits for their technical problems?

 

My history is gone now.....
