downloading skype on windows with norton security

I just got a pc & I'm used to a mac so I'm lost. I'm trying to download skype onto this lap top but it's saying for the safety of the computer it wont download. Do I have to buy norton security to enable me to get skype? thanks

Re: downloading skype on windows with norton security

No, you definitely don't have to buy Norton to download or use Skype. 


Try using this link to download the Skype installer:


If the Windows UAC (User Access Control) asks you if you want to allow that program to download/run, say yes.


Save the file from that link to your hard drive.  Once the download is complete, double click on the file to run it and install Skype.
