Why won't skype for windows 8 open?

Whenever I press on the icon on my start page it opens then immediately closes again.. I don't know what to do! Any ideas?

Re: Why won't skype for windows 8 open?

Do you have any security software installed on the computer?
Did a Free-trial antivirus come preinstalled on the computer when you bought it?
Do you have any other p2p (µTorrent, BiTtorrent / Team Viewer) software installed on the computer?
Which version of Skype do you use?
Do you have Hamachi LogMeIn installed?
