Skype not going online

I love that the Skype FAQ give you the option of chosing the above option but then fail to answer it in the FAQ, just lots of sales hype.... :sad:

 

Anyway, for some reason Skype has decided to not connect to the internet anymore. I just get the little grey icon with rotating arrows in it (forever).

 

I have uninstalled and reinstalled Skype and no change. There is no option I can click to manually set connections or anything like that.

 

Anybody have a magic wand ?

 

Thanks for your help.

 

Tech spec : Skype 5.10, Windows 7, Lenovo Think Pad, Virgin media wifi

PS : good job I have a mac too, at least it is all working there.

Re: Skype not going online

What anti-virus application or security suite is installed?
