I tried uninstalling and reinstalling skype. I'm still having the same problem: skype opens up, lets me put in my skype name and password, but then when I click on the "sign me in" button nothing happens. I can type things in when skype come up, but its like the buttons dont work, nothing happens when I click on them.
having same problem using windows 7 64 bit
I tried unistalling some windows updates. I looked at internet explorer security settings they are set to medium and low
I don't know Skype runs okay om my main desktop using xp
Quit Skype. Make sure that you don’t see any Skype.exe processes in Windows Task Manager. If necessary, then stop these processes. Open C:\Program Files\ folder. If you have 64-bit Windows then it should be C:\Program Files (x86)\ folder. Find the Skype folder and then Phone. Right click on the Skype.exe file and select: Send to – Desktop (create shortcut). Right click on the newly created shortcut and select the Shortcut tab. In the Target field you will see now: "C:\Program Files\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe" (or with (x86) if you are on 64-bit Windows) Click with your mouse on the text in the Target field and move your curser one space after the last quotation sign and add the text /legacylogin. The text in the Target field should now read:
"C:\Program Files\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe" /legacylogin
Click OK to save the changes. Start Skype using this new shortcut. Can you now login to Skype?
no I cannot and the computer would not allow those changes to the target field
What exactly happens when you try to made changes to the target field? Have you used the new shortcut created by yourself or the original shortcut created by Skype?
Thank you!!! this seems to have sloved my problem I am useing windowsxp.. Thanks again!
What exactly was the problem you were experiencing? Can you check now if the “Add a contact” function works? Can you see menus in Skype?
