Unable to Login into Skype??

Hello,

 

I'm unable to log into Skype??

 

Everytime I login, I received a windows explorer window - C:\ProgramData\Skype\Apps\login??

 

I've uninstalled Skype and reinstalled Skype, no success at all.

Re: Unable to Login into Skype??

You are experiencing a very common problem. Skype 5.5 and later depends heavily on Internet Explorer (IE) and Microsoft Scripting Engine. In particular, the install/uninstall procedure of Click to Call requires functioning VBscript and Skype login requires Internet Explorer being able to access JavaScript. There are currently about 69 different threads on this community forum dealing with this issue. In some cases the Fix It procedure from

support.microsoft.com/kb/949140

can fix this problem but not always. There is never only one “true” method which will resolve the issue. Here are few examples of the current threads dealing with this problem.
