Just downloaded Skype...

And I open the program and this is what pops up

 

 

I assume the start up screen isn't supposed to look like this. How the heck do I log in? Thanks.

Re: Just downloaded Skype...

The problem is with your Internet Explorer and JavaScript.

 

Please, answer first these questions:

 

What version of Windows are you on? Is it 32-bit or 64-bit?

Go to Windows Start and in the Search box type winver.exe and then press Enter.

 

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.

Re: Just downloaded Skype...

Here are ruwim's suggestions for correcting your problem:

 

Go to Windows Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Right click on Command Prompt, select 'Run as administrator'.

 

The Command Prompt window should show:

 

C:\Windows\SysWoW64>

If this is not the case, then at the Command Prompt type: cd c:\windows\SysWoW64 and press Enter.

Once you see C:\Windows\SysWoW64>

Type this and then press Enter:

 

regsvr32 jscript.dll

 

Next type this and press Enter:

 

regsvr32 jscript9.dll

 

After each Enter you should receive a message saying that DllRegisterServer in XXX.dll succeeded.

 

Reboot your computer.

 

Make now the test showing if your Internet Explorer can execute JavaScript.

 

Open in your Internet Explorer (no other browser but only IE 32-bit version) this page:

Click on the “Simply Click This Button” button and watch the response.

Re: Just downloaded Skype...

This happens when I attempt that...

 

 

Does it looks like I'm putting something in wrong?

Re: Just downloaded Skype...

In similar cases the solution was to uninstall IE9. Windows will automatically revert to the previous IE8 version and this might resolve your problems. Later on you can try to re-install IE9 again

 

See here how to uninstall/reinstall IE9.
