Skype doesn't work on Windows Started at Asus netbook

Hi everyone.

I can't get skype at my asus netbook with windows started 7. Everytime that I try to open the program it shows me a message that says that windows can't found the program. I also checked the proprieties also changed to use only in Wndows 7. Is there nybody here with this problem?

tks

Thanks very much Ruwin

It fixed. You are very right. It was the application. Also I followed this that you wrote in another post:

open the registry editor and go to:

 

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options

 

delete the key labeled "skype.exe" and you should be good to go.

 

And worked!!!!

tks again

Re: Skype doesn't work on Windows Started at Asus netbook

there is only a file name "Default" inside HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options

Any alternative way? I am so frustated by this Skype problem..Really dissapointing.

That 'Default' is not the only option there. Basically,

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options


The Image File Execution is itself an expandable menu. Expand it to see Skype.exe. Delete and Voila!

Hi,

I have uninstalled McAfee Family Protection but cannot find skype.exe in the windows registry.  I'm still getting the message about skype.exe being corrupt.  Needless to say I still cannot sign in to Skype even though  Tune up utilities says it has permanently abled Skype 6.14.

 

What else can I do?
