Hi there, I'm new to Skype and am trying to download it, but can't seem to get past the installation step.
Every time I try to download it, everything works smoothly until my installation reaches 100%. After that, I get the message "We are having problems connecting to the download server.
I tried it with the alternative installer as well, but that one won't even begin to install before giving me that same error message.
What exaclty am I supposed to do in this situation? I have Windows XP and have also tried downloading it while turning both my firewall and anti virus software off. Nothing seems to work. I'm about ready to give up.

- try using another browser (IE, Firefox, Chrome, etc)
- try the full installer
request someone to download the full installer for you, then send it via email (it's around 23mb), or upload it in an file hosting site.
I am having the exact same problem...
I have downloaded the regular installer and the full installer as well, and it comes up with the same error message.
Not getting any errors from windows firewall or anything either.
Anyone know what I can do?
please try the links and suggesions mentioned here;
You can also try to temporarily disable your anti-virus/firewall software while downloading and installing Skype.
