Re: Can't type in skype log in and password fields

Please, answer first these questions:

 

What version of Windows are you on (XP, Vista, Windows 7)? Is it 32-bit or 64-bit?

What is the version of Internet Explorer installed on your computer?

 

In Internet Explorer go to Help -> About Internet Explorer.

 

P.S. Please, don’t say that you are not using Internet Explorer. This is irrelevant. Skype depends on Internet Explorer.

Try to uninstall IE9 and let Windows to revert to the previous IE8 version.

 

In order to uninstall IE9 you should go to Windows Control Panel -> Program and Features -> View installed updates -> Microsoft Windows -> Windows Internet Explorer 9.
