Try to reset skype settings

 

Exit Skype : From the system tray >> right click on the skype icon and click "Quit Skype"

 

Click Start >> Run Type: %appdata% Rename folder "Skype" to "Old_Skype"

 

Re-run Skype

 

Note: You will need your password to re-log on, and re-set any options from default

I disabled my Norton antivirus.

I reinstalled Skype and update.

I enabled Norton.

All looks fine for now!!!

Re: Log in to Skype

What exactly happens when you are trying to login?

 

What Firewall and Antivirus applications are installed on your computer?

You can do nothing from your Account page on Skype.com. You need to download and install Skype program on your computer. Only using this program you can find your friends and make calls.
