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?
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.
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?
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?
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.
all my computer comes up with buy Skype premium account and all it wants is my money...the last I heard was that it was free
Install Skype program on your computer and start using it.
