Everytime I try to make a call. Skype begins dialing but an Windows error message appears and states there is a problem with skype and it (windows) is shutting it down!! This started today, and has occured in every instance attempted!!
Exact same thing happened to me this morning around 10 or 11.
Everytime I try to video call or simply call someone, it works without fail for a few seconds, then windows freezes skype, and it turns whiteish like when a window isn't responding, and an error message pops up saying "skype has stopped working" and under says "A problem caused the program to stop working correcty. Windows wil close the program and notify you if a solution is available."
There are two options, Debug or Close program.
If i choose debug, it takes me to some debugging program, and i can hear the call in the background either dropped or still online. If i try to head back to skype, the window still has the white-ish cover over it and seems to be frozen, but I can hear the call. Eventually, it shuts the call down, and the debugging program isn't working.
If I hit close program, skype automatically shuts down.
When I reopen it it will work just fine, untill I try to call anyone again, and sometimes it will just spontaneously stop working.
please help.. why does Skype keep giving me an error message.. I even changed my skype name. uninstall- re downloaded. It worked fine for one call and then started with the error messages again.. what do i do ..
I'm having the same issues with skype shutting down when I try to make a call.
This happened to me about a month ago when I was out of town.
I uninstalled and reinstalled it at least a dozen times and it didn't help.
I even tried the help button and that shut me down too.
It finally fixed itself?
Anyone have an answer, this is very frustrating.
Agree about the frustration!
