Re: "Skype has stopped working message"

Solution from Skype guy in another thread. This is for Windows 7 and it resets Skype, so you'll need your password to sign in at the end:

 

- Make sure Skype is closed

- Click Start then type %appdata% in the text field at the bottom, hit enter

- You should see a Skype folder on the right, select it and delete

- Restart Skype. It will be back at default settings so you need to sign in again.

 

This worked fine for me.

Re: "Skype has stopped working message"

I'm having the same problem.  It appears that the Flash Player and broken Flash ads

are causing the problem.  I have Skype 5.5, Flash Player 11.1, and there's an ad by

Progressive displayed on my Skype Home page that seems to be crashing Skype.

The last time I had the problem, uninstalling the Flash Player did the trick.  It's

just annoying to have to uninstall Flash so I can use Skype and then install it again

when I want to see some Flash content in a web browser.  It would be helpful to

have a switch to disable plugins in Skype.

Re: "Skype has stopped working message"

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:

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% Delete folder "Skype".

 

4. Re-run Skype
