Try to start Skype using the “legacylogin” workaround.

 

Quit Skype. Make sure that you don’t see any Skype.exe processes in Windows Task Manager. If necessary, then stop these processes.

 

Open this folder on your computer:

 

C:\Program Files (x86)\Skype\Phone\

 

You should see there the Skype application file (Skype.exe).  Right click on the Skype.exe file and select: Send to – Desktop (create shortcut). Right click on the newly created shortcut and select Properties and then the Shortcut tab. In the Target field you will see now:

 

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe"

 

Click with your mouse on the text in the Target field and move your curser one space after the last quotation sign and add the text /legacylogin. The text in the Target field should now read:

 

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe"  /legacylogin

 

Click OK to save the changes. Start Skype using this new shortcut. Can you now login to Skype?

Start your Windows in Safe mode with Networking and then try to start Skype.

Try to uninstall the currently installed version and install the older 6.1.0.129 version using this msi-installer:

 

http://download.skype.com/msi/SkypeSetup_6.1.0.129.msi

 

After installing this version, make sure to disable the Automatic updates:

 

Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> Automatic updates ->Turn off automatic updates

My system autoupdated to Skype 6.11 and it crashs whenever I restarted.

 

I then removed 6.11 and installed 6.1.0.129 and the same problem, Skype still crashes everytime I tried to start it.

 

Don't know what to do next?

 

Thanks

Elliot
