cannot install skype

I downloaded the installer, ran it and after it finished downloading I got: "we are having problems connecting to the download server. to download an alternative installer..."

I downloaded the alternative installer, and got the same thing.

Re: cannot install skype

I did everything you suggested. Ran the SkypeSetupFull.exe file- got the same thing: ""we are having problems connecting to the download server. To download an alternative installer..."

Re: cannot install skype

не запускается скайп. переустанасливаю третий день. при входе выдает ошибку 



"Инструкция по адресу"0х637b2ede" обратилась к памяти по адресу "0х00000000". память не может быть "read". 

ОК - завершение приложение

Отмена - отладка приложения

 

После этого окно закрывается, не успеваю даже пароль ввести. Три дня назад все работало нормально. ПОМОГИТЕ!!!
