For some reason, my skype will not open up at all. I double click on it, move the mouse to the right hand bottom screen to open up to make the video-call....and it disappears before it opens up. Please help!!!! :sad:

Re: Skype will not open

One thing that you can try, is to see if the Skype service is running. Start your windows task manager and then look under the Processes tab. Look for Skype.exe If it's running, click on the process, and choose End Task, and hit OK or yes to terminate the task. 

Try launching Skype again. If this works. Uninstall and re-install skype.
