I am having the same issue. the minute i open a calling window skype comes up with a message saying that the program has stopped working.
same issue, i get a mcafee warning saying computer may be at risk then crash, a few seconds after start up. Problem started today, nothing wrong yesterday.
It seems to let me log in, but when my friends invite me into a conversation, it crashes like 5 seconds in saying "Skype has Stopped Working properly" and a button to click to close the program and have Windows search for a solution.
Well guess what, windows solution is to download the updated version of Skype. Just one problem...I Already Have the Most Recent Version of Skype.
Any help with this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Well obviously services haven't recovered since that message was posted 10 hours ago and all the people in this thread are still having problems.
EDIT: Skype seems to be working for me now. Not sure if something was done, but it hasn't crashed again. This is still the second time I've had this problem whereas my friends haven't so if this can be explained or prevented in the future, it would be greatly appreciated.
