skype home not loading

I am new to Skype and am having problems with the SkypeHome page not loading. I am running windows 7 with Chrome and IE9. Skype Home will not load and I've tried thefixes listed in this forum but still can't get Skype Home to load. This is a new install. I tried renaming the login folder to login1 and the Skype folder to Old_Skype, but neither solved the issue. I also tried changing my online status and did not work. Is there another way to get it to work?

Re: skype home not loading

Are you sure that your connection status on Skype is Online? The status icon next to your name must be solid green with a white checkmark inside.


Also, what do you see when you open this link in your Internet Explorer (no other browser but only IE)?
