Re: Problem - can't install Skype on Windows 7

Dear support team,

 

I was trying install Skype on the Win7 OS. I downloaded full version from the official website. Installation was started and Skype was searching for the updates. After that, there should have been a window for the typing loging and password, however there was only blue window without any white lane to type in login.

 

Thank you in advance and waiting for your reply

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?

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.
