Your Skype Name and password were not recognized.Please check and try again.

Good Day,

I would like to know what is happening to skype on my computer. I'm using windows 7 though i recently formatted my laptop which was running on windows xp before i changed it to windows 7 and then everything was working perfectly without any sign of error not until i changed it to window 7, so whenever i tried to sign in i kept on getting error message "Your Skype Name and password were not recognized.Please check and try again". Eventhough, i registered new usernames and passwords still getting same error so i later noticed the problem is from my laptop because all the accounts i've opened works on other computers except my own laptop.Please i would like to know solution to this problem because it keeps on giving me headache,Thanks
