Skype won't open

For a few days, Skype has refused to open on my laptop. It's fine on my desktop, but that's not enough. I have uninstalled and reinstalled, but when I try to open Skype I still get the Windows error message saying "Skype has encountered a problem and needs to close." 

 

Help! About to leave on a trip and need my laptop communication.

Re: Skype won't open

The same thing is happening with my laptop. I run windows vista home basic, and recently had updates from microsoft installed. Not it wont work at all. One time it said that Data Execution Preventions caused the program to shut down, but after changing settings with DEP it still did not fix the problem.
