Re: Skype not working at all

Please, answer first these questions:

 

What version of Windows are you on? Is it 32-bit or 64-bit?

 

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/827218

 

Go to Windows Start and in the Search box type winver.exe and then press Enter.

 

What is the version of Internet Explorer installed on your computer?

 

In Internet Explorer go to Help -> About Internet Explorer

Re: Skype not working at all

Try this:

 

Go to Windows Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Right click on Command Prompt, select 'Run as administrator'.

 

The Command Prompt window should show:

 

C:\Windows\SysWoW64>

 

If what you are seeing is:

 

C:\Windows\System32>

 

then in the Command Prompt type: cd..  (2 dots are important) and press Enter.

 

Now you should see this in the Command Prompt:

 

C:\Windows>

 

Next type cd syswow64 and press Enter.

 

Now you should see this in the Command Prompt:

 

C:\Windows\SysWoW64>

 

Type this and then press Enter:

 

regsvr32 jscript.dll

 

After each Enter you should receive a message saying that DllRegisterServer in XXX.dll succeeded.

 

Reboot your computer.

 

Make now the test showing if your Internet Explorer can execute JavaScript.

 

Open in your Internet Explorer (no other browser but only IE) this page:

Click on the “Simply Click This Button” button and watch the response.
