Skype has no log in bar

[ Edited ]

Hi All,

 

I was wondering if you could help me please?

 

My Skype no longer has login or password bars on the start up screen. I have trawled previous threads and the 'solutions' never seem to work.

 

I am on Windows 7, am 64bit(?) and use IE 10. Any advice would be wonderful!

 

Thank you :happy:

This has nothing to do with Skype. IE10 is not yet working well on Windows 7 computers. As long as your Internet Explorer is not able to execute JavaScript, you will have this "blue login window" issue.

 

Try now to uninstall IE10 and reinstall IE9.

 

In order to uninstall IE10 you should go to Windows Control Panel -> Program and Features -> View installed updates -> Microsoft Windows -> Windows Internet Explorer 10.

Re: Skype has no log in bar

You can first try this, but eventually it might be neccessary to uninstall IE10 and reinstall IE9.

 

Go to Windows Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Right click on Command Prompt, select 'Run as administrator'.

 

In the Command Prompt type:  cd c:\windows\syswow64 and press Enter.

 

Next type this and then press Enter:

 

regsvr32  jscript.dll

 

Next type this and press Enter:

 

regsvr32  jscript9.dll

 

After each Enter you should receive a message saying that DllRegisterServer in XXX.dll succeeded.

 

Reboot your computer.

 

Make now the test showing if your Internet Explorer can execute JavaScript.

 

Open in your Internet Explorer (no other browser but only IE 32-bit version) this page:

Re: Skype has no log in bar

Hi, Thanks for the reply. I attempted your suggestion again, having done it many times before from looking at other threads, and it did not work. Any other suggestions? The test does seem to work in Chrome and I followed the instructions on the site you posted to enable scripting. Where can I double check that I actually have JavaScript? I'm reluctant to unload the IE10. It doesn't make sense, surely it should be compatible with SKYPE! SK

Re: Skype has no log in bar

Hey, at the part when you said
"Next type this and then press Enter:"
"regsvr32 jscript.dll"

When I typed it in, it didn't give me a message saying DllRegisterServer in XXX.dll succeeded. It gave me

"The module "jscript.dll" was loaded but the call to DllRegisterServer failed with the error code 0x80004005."
