unable to install Skype

Hi, I am running Win XP sp2, and when I download Skype setup (1.03mb) I am unable to install it.

It will download and at the end it will give me the following message:

"We are having problems connecting to the download server.

To download an alternative installer for Skype, click the download button"

 

I tried the alternative; skype-full, and still will not install, giving me the same message.

 

Please help!

I would suggest updating to SP3... I'm sure there are some important security updates in there. I know a lot of programs today require SP3 if you are using XP. If nothing else works try to update first then try to install skype after that.
