Re: keeps crashing on my windows 7

The quickest method, currently, to resolve this, is to install over, what you have. using the beta release here: http://skype.com/go/getskype-beta

You can also use a IP Camera as your camera for Skype video Example Instructions

Uninstall the current version of Skype, then reinstall the new Skype 5.7 beta version. See if it helps.

 

Download Skype 5.7 Beta for Windows:

 

http://www.skype.com/go/getskype-beta-full/

 

If not resolve this issue, then

 

Please do a Skype reset:

 

1. Ensure that "Show hidden files and folders" is switched on.

Click Start and then Run Type "control folders" and click OK. In the View tab, ensure that Show hidden files and folders is enabled

 

2. Exit Skype : From the system tray >> right click on the skype icon and click "Quit Skype"

 

3. Click Start >> Run Type: %appdata% Rename folder "Skype" to "Old_Skype".

 

4. Re-run Skype

 

Check if the issue persists.

Re: keeps crashing on my windows 7

Windows 7 x64:

 

I had the same problem and read that I needed to uninstall adobe flash and then re-install... it worked for about a week then the same thing started happening again - skype would consistently crash after a few seconds.

 

Resolution:

 

I then read where someone recommended installing the new 5.7 beta over the existing skype ... it seems to have worked!!!

Re: keeps crashing on my windows 7

Installing the beta over my current installation helped me stop the crashing problem. My crashing problem only just happened in the last few days.
