Can't sign in to Skype!

Well, I downloaded the newest version of Skype, and now nothing will work at all. I can't sign into it, and haven't been able to for about four or five days now. I have followed all of the suggestions I understood, and compeltely uninstalled and reinstalled Skype at least three times, and I'm just not sure what else to do. 

 

Every time I try to sign in, a little spinny circle shows up on the login window, as if it's loading, does that for about three minutes, then tells me it cannot connect. Any suggestions?

What Firewall and Antivirus applications are installed on your computer?

Open Windows Event Viewer -> Custom Views -> Administrative Events. Look for any recent error messages with timestamp correspondong to Skype crash.

Re: Can't sign in to Skype!

I fixed mine by uninstalling McAfee. Something about the Firewall doesn't let you connect, so I hope that helps you guys!!

Re: Can't sign in to Skype!

I have good news for some of you that have been getting the blue screen that says "ooops there is a problem we cannot sign in then it has another link that says try again.

I just spent 3 days with Skype's techs and sorry to say it had no idea and their attitude was to get you off their backs as soon as possible when they couldn't;t find the solution

Today I spent all day with microsoft, same result.

As a last attempt I happened to realize that:
My microsoft merged accts were showing a Skype account that I had cancelled the other day.

and that is why although I could sign into my other Skype accts it simple wouldn't allowed them to sign in because the main Skype acct listed with Microsoft was the cancelled one.

So what I did, I went back to Skype support and ask them to unlink the cancelled acct from microsoft, and instantly I was able to sign into Skype with one of my other accts

Skype app should have a way to unlink automatically when that happens.

good luck
