The procedure entry point NtAlpc SendWaitReceivePort could not be located in the dynamic link library ntdll.dll.
When pressin OK Skype loads .
I have removed Skype & downloaded again but still have problem

The problem is not in Skype but with some other applications installed on your computer. See e.g. this
Do you have installed the Kies software for Samsung phones?
In your message, you indicate that you found the solution on the error message, but unfortunaltely I cannot find it from the differents links provided (sorry but i am not a super user of computer).
can you provide me a short explanation of what need to be done to fix this problem...(renaming some kind of files in kies!)
The solution is provided in this article:
Look for the post of Ragamuffa.:
“The problem seems to be caused by the avrt.dll that Kies put in the Windows\System32 folder.
Simply renaming the file stopped the annoying pop-ups to appear all the time. Worked for me at least in Windows XP SP3.”
the solution to the problem seem to be renaming the avrt.dll file in windows...
when you rename the file... what should be the renamed file ? I"ve tried to use the same name (avrt.dll) but did not worked
Thank you so much for this information and help.

Got the same message after being forced to upgrade skype.
So now i'm forced to disable my 6 month old phones software, because MS/skype changed/upgraded their software ? ... SWEET
Personally, if i had to guess, i'm betting this is just a first step towards a process of forcing or trying to force XP users to upgrade their OS if they want to use skype.
It happened with MS messenger, the latest version of messenger wont work on XP. Im sure MS wanted this to happen.
another nail in skype's coffin .
PS if i'm forced to change anything, i'll downgrade skype , or remove it for other software first...
