Yesterday, my skype crashed and after that, it would start and crash as soon as it booted up saying skype.exe stopped working. I uninstalled and removed all registry entries(as well as what ever else the directions said). I then restarted, reinstalled and still had the same problem. I can no longer use skype.

If you haven't already done this as part of the "whatever else," give it a try:
Quit Skype. Hold the Windows key and type r. In the box that comes up type %appdata% <enter>. Scroll down to find the \Skype folder and rename it something like \Skype_old. Restart Skype and see if it will run without crashing.
Note: Renaming the Skype folder will move IM and call history to the renamed folder. They can be recovered with a few extra steps.
If the problem persists, look in Event Viewer > Administative Events for any error with the time stamp of the Skype crash. If you copy and paste that error here it may shed some light on what's causing your problem.
Please note: I do not respond to requests for help via Private Message.
