Skype won't let me add a contact

HI there.

 

When I try to 'add a contact' the window for that function opens but it is completely blank and does nothing. What can I do?

See this:

Note that regardless which browser you are using, Skype is using Internet Explore in order to create and manage the “Add a contact” window.

 

What version of IE is installed on your computer?

 

What do you see when you open this link in your Internet Explorer?

Re: Skype won't let me add a contact

In other words i have to uninstall and reinstall internet explorer just to add a friend on skype - which should be completely independent from such a bad search engine as IE. Skype really outdid themselves in coming up with a stupid and unnecessary system for adding friends and wasting my time.

 

Thanks Skype

 

btw - i'm not having a go at you ruwim, in fact thank you for the help

My problem is similar; I had a friend who I deleted but before I deleted her, I blocked her, maybe that's the reason it wont let me add her but does anyone know how I can unblock her?

In Skype go to Tools -> Options -> Privacy settings -> Blocked contacts. In the list of blocked people find the name of the blocked contact, highlight this name and then press the “Unblock this person” button.
