Skype Immediately Crashing

[ Edited ]

Alright, I give up. I've been all through Google, tried every X and Y solution I could, but nothing works. My problem is every time I open skype, it immediately crashes. It was working fine, I had a call going for hours, decided to shut down skype. I wanted to start it back up again, but now it crashes everytime no matter what I do. If this issue cannot be resolved, I will just reinstall my entire OS.

 

Issue: Skype crashes immediately upon opening

 

Solutions Tried:

  • Reinstalling
  • Deleting AppData
  • Cleaning Registry
  • Changing Compatibility
  • Completely Cleaning Skype Off My PC and Reinstalling
  • Installing Really Old Versions Of Skype (ie. ver. 4.0)
  • Installing 5.7 Beta
  • Installing Portable Skype
  • Changing DEP to Work With All Programs Except Skype
  • Changing Firewall Settings
  • Restarting, Reinstalling, Rebooting
  • Deleted config.xml
  • Deleted shared.xml
  • Reinstalled Flash Player
  • Installed Latest Flash Player
  • Completely Wiped Flash Player and Reinstalled
  • Checking Internet Explorer Settings
  • Dumping All Cache and Temp Files
  • And Every Single Combination of the Above

 

I either obtain this crash data on ver. 5.8
