Re: [FIX] Skype Keeps Crashing

I just read the rules and I see nothing about linking to downloads so...

You can click here if you would like to download the program.

Once again, please make sure skype is completely closed (including the icon in the taskbar). If the icon in the taskbar is still there right click it and press Quit.

 

If there are some rules against linking to downloads please let me know.

 

Do not forget you can download skype beta (link in my first post).

Re: [FIX] Skype Keeps Crashing

When it crashes just run the program again. If you can not deal with this at all you can download the skype beta which is linked to in my first post, but until then just run the program as needed. Also, avoid status changes, avatar changes, and file transfers, because they contribute to this problem.

Are you sure that all of you completely quit out of Skype (not just closed window)?

See the first post for help on doing that.

 

Also, there is a link to a new beta version of Skype.

Re: [FIX] Skype Keeps Crashing

Uninstall your current version of Skype and Download the beta OR you can download an earlier version that does not have this problem.

Go Here to D/L older versions

There is no need to uninstall it as long as you compleletly quit out.

Look at this image: 

All you have to do is right click the little icon and press quit. Then you can download the beta or run the program.
