Re: Skype can't connect. HOW DO I FIX IT!!!!!!!

I download skype and it didn't go to : add new programs. Plus I didn't get a skype logo or a start up logo . What site do I have to download to get my account back up and running ?

Sensible answers only please

I too am having this problem.

 

Symptoms (in rough chronological order):

Someone tries to call me. Accept / close buttons unresponsive, cannot accept call

Shockwave flash will keep crashing if browser windows are simultaneously open

Skype will not start (already sgned in error, so I close hidden Skype instance in Task Manager)

Skype starts, but cannot connect (green circle 'connecting' shows indefinitely)

Antivirus (AVG free) turned off - no change

Installed Skype on my Android device. Worked first time, but subsequent attempts to open app fail

 

PC: Win7 64-bit, latest updates for Flash and Shockwave flash installed. IE reinstalled. No change

Android device: Samsung Galaxy Young Duo with latest version of Skype installed

 

If anyone else suggests turning off my antivirus as if this is the obvious answer I shall probably explode! Skype has always played nicely with AVG (TEN years now)

 

What on earth have they done to Skype? Has anyone got a good suggestion for an alternative, as I really dont' have time to mess around for hours trying to use something that has always worked for years...

Re: Skype can't connect. HOW DO I FIX IT!!!!!!!

Ok, Since Skype seem totally indifferent to this problem, I managed to find a fix that worked for me.

 

Having done some serious investigating, it looked like the internal flash player for Google Chrome was conflicting with the 2nd installed (i.e. standard version) of flash.

 

Solution: I have had to remove Google Chrome and install another browser. I also removed flash. Skype now works fine.

 

The cynic in me suspects that Microsoft (Skype's owners) may be aware of this issue and happy to leave it as low priority, since having to remove Google Chrome is a great way to get people back on IE.

 

So I installed Firefox :wink:

 

I hope this helps others and saves the hours of wasted time I spent fixing Skype's compatibility issues. As a paying customer, I don't expect to have to debug Skype!
