Skype on ACER Aspire One D257 - Windows 7 Starter

I have installed Skype 5.8 on my new Netbook, but when the sign in screen comes up it is blank i.e., the user and password boxes are not there. I have tried some of the recommendations included in the blogs but they don't work. Should I uninstall and install an earlier version that works  with Windows 7 starter. Please help me solve this problem.

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\System32>

 

If this is not the case, then in the Command Prompt type:  cd c:\windows\system32 and press Enter.

 

Type this and then press Enter:

 

regsvr32 jscript.dll

 

Next type this and press Enter:

 

regsvr32 jscript9.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:

You need to configure McAfee’s Firewall to allow Skype traffic or completely disable it.

Please, answer first these questions:

 

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

 

In Internet Explorer go to Help -> About Internet Explorer

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