Well, I've installed and uninstalled Skype about 10 times, and it's never worked for me, at all. When it installs, it asks me my language preference, says that it's starting to install, and then all I get is a blank white window with the dropdown buttons "Skype", "Tools", and "Help", that I can't press. Help? :/ I've included a screenshot.
Please, answer first these questions:
What version of Windows are you on? 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.
