Error Code 1603

Hi,

I am an old user of Skype, but recently have a problem upgrading it as everytime i try the installation stops, saying something about a shell-extention and then give me the Error Code 1603.

I read the other entry about the same error code problem, but want to know if I can try the same solution, or is mine different?

Please help me out.

regards,

charles
