Okay...so after the recent update I tried logging into skype and managed to log in but a few seconds after logging in a window popped up and said that skype wanted internet access. I was stupid and didn't think about it cause I had never had that window pop up before so I clicked block. And now I can't log in at all! Any tips????
you can try to disable your Windows Firewall
or you can add Skype to its settings
visit the page and see the "Enable programs by using Windows Firewall" section.
Umm.....I tried the steps for readding it to my firewall and it didn't work. I have windows 7 and I have mcaffee virus protection. I tried the steps to add a new "rule" to my firewall connection settings and it didn't work. What else do you have up your sleeve to help me overcome this issue??? I will try again to see if it will work. Thanks for your help!
try deleting Skype from the list of exclude programs in McAfee and adding it again.
In McAfeeSecurityCenter >> Web and Email Protection >> Firewall >> Internet Connections for Programs >> Program >> Look for Skype >> Make sure it has Full access using the Edit button.
you can also try switching Netguard off.
That is okay! Turns out i didn't have to do any of that! I just uninstalled and reinstalled skype. Thanks for your help! It is working now except now I can't access my pictures that I took before I upgraded my skype.
You are very welcome and thank you for your feedback.
