Skype won't load?

I didn't start having this problem until recently, but whenever I start up skype, I get the log in screen that won't load no matter how long I wait. I've reinstalled skype multiple times to see if it would fix it.
Is there anyway to fix this at all?

I'm using windows 7, if that helps at all.

Re: Skype won't load?

The problem is with your Internet Explorer and JavaScript.

 

Look here for an appropriate solution.

Be careful with selecting the correct procedure corresponding to your Windows system and the version of Internet Explorer.

First make sure that you have Internet Explorer 8 installed on your computer.

 

http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=43

 

If this will still not resolve the issue, then try this:

 

Go to Windows Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Command Prompt.

 

Type the following in the Command Prompt window and then press Enter:

 

regsvr32  jscript.dll

 

You should receive a message saying DllRegisterServer in jscript.dll succeeded.

 

Reboot your computer.

 

In order to test if your Internet Explorer is able to execute JavaScript, do the following test:

 

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

Click on the “Simply Click This Button” button and watch the response.

Ahti,

 

Do you have any security software installed on the computer?

 

Try Below:

 

Reset IE.

 

Press WinKey + R to open the Run window

WinKey (the button is located between the left Ctrl and Alt with the Windows logo)

In IE, Click Internet Options >> Advanced >> Restore Advanced Settings >> Reset.

Mark Delete personal settings >> OK >> restart.

 

Please Run the Cleaning Manager Utility

 

Press WinKey + R to open the Run window

select the Temp Internet Files boxes and click OK, then Click Delete files.

Re: Skype won't load?

We should have known that once microsoft got skype sooner or later it would fail.  All microsoft products do this.  They will probably fix it sometime late in 2014 or 2015.
