Skype has stopped working in Windows 7

Re: Skype has stopped working in Windows 7

I'm having the same problem. Its been doing that since I reinstalled the new Skype 5.8 with premium. Now I can't even use premium to take advantage of the group calls. After trying to sign in, there is a "skype has stopped working" and says a problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available. How do we get help on this?

Open Windows Event Viewer -> Custom Views -> Administrative Events. Look for any recent error messages with timestamp corresponding to Skype crash. Copy the text from the General tab and post it here.

Please, see this:

In several other similar cases (the same error message) the problem was caused by a virus.

Re: Skype has stopped working in Windows 7

a virus that only affects Skype?  Unlikely.  I go through this computer once a week with a battery of anti-virus & anti-malware programs.

 

This occured AFTER a Windows Update, and only to SKYPE.

Please post event viewer log in your very next reply.

Click Start >> Run >> Type eventvwr.msc /s
Custom Views >> Administrative Events
Look for any error message related to Skype crash.
