Skype not compatible with windows 8?

I have windows 8, and I use skype almost every day, and every time in get out of a skype call, my internet drops, I can't launch any programs, its almost like my computer is just sitting there when I launch a program, none of the programs respond, and I just reset my computer, installed skype, got in a call and hung up, same thing happened. I have to restart my computer every time i get out of a skype call, it is really annoying and its been doing this for a while now, im just fed up with it and want it fixed.

Re: Skype not compatible with windows 8?

I too have Windows 8 Release Preview and latest version of Skype installed on my laptop.


Try Below:


In Skype, Tools >> Options >> Advanced >> Advanced Settings >> Connection >> uncheck the enable uPnP and click Save.
