Skype won't install - Windows 7

Secunia PSI showed me that my Skype was not up to date.

I downloaded Skype_6.3.0.105_SPS.exe.

Ran.

Said it cannot install over existing installation.

I uninstall the existing one.

Reboot.

Run Skype_6.3.0.105_SPS.exe.

Comodo:  need authorization to modify a COM interface. Allow.

That's it.  No more dialogs.  No errors. Nothing else happens.

 

Any ideas how I make it install?  I've lost my Skype.

CANCEL the question.

 

I re-downloaded and it is a different file which DID work properly.

 

The place Secunial PSI sent me to for the upgrade install file was wrong.
