Re: only get a blue blank screen when I open skype

The problem is with your Internet Explorer and JavaScript.


Please, answer first these questions:


What version of Windows are you on (XP, Vista, Windows 7)? Is it 32-bit or 64-bit?


What is the version of Internet Explorer installed on your computer?


In Internet Explorer go to Help -> About Internet Explorer.


P.S. Please, don’t say that you are not using Internet Explorer. This is irrelevant. Skype depends on Internet Explorer.
