IT WORKED!!! If you were here I would give you a big hug, thank you so very much. I hope you can get your problem solved soon.
Sorry, but can you also tell what was working?
I tried finding our post but couldn't find yours from yesterday. I was having problems connecting. The connection icon just kept going around and around. I had downloaded the upgraded of skype, very bad idea. You suggested I do something with my firewall and antivirus. Then you sent me a message with a link to try for Skype and I did and it worked!! I thank you so much. Maybe others should uninstall the ugrade and go back the the old one. The only problem I was having is I COULD NOT CONNECT, PEROID. Everything is back to normal. I don't need the upgrade and after having this trouble I won't ever upgrade it. This is the reply I go from you. Please see if you can help others with this.
Try to disable Norton and see if this helps. See also this:
If this doesn’t help, then uninstall your current Skype version and try to install the older 5.9 version using this installer:
My Skype is working beacuse of the link above, but understand, mine wouldn not even connect. After clicking this link everything was back to normal, ever thing work. Thank you ruwim (Super User). This download could be the answer. I hope others use it and it works. Take care!
