I am having the same problem that several members here are experiencing.
Prior to todays date of December 17, 2011, my skype program was just working peachy keen as they say. Today, I downloaded the latest version of skype and lo and behold, skype continually shutting down with the message skype has stopped working and then windows says it is looking for a solution, but alas it does not find one. I have Windows Ultimate 7 on my PC and have a 4gig memory with an AMD Phenom 1.8gig processor. I have had skype for about a year now. Never any difficulties, if there was a problem logging on, the solution was simple, update to the latest version. I have updated to the latest version and I am able to log on, however as soon as I try to place a video call, or doi anything else boom, I receive the message skype has stopped working. Help!!!!!!!!! What am I able to do. Thank you in advance for any advice, counsel, comfort please. Very frustrating not able to video my friends.
I'm having the same issue. Skype has been allowing me to log and do normal text conversations, but everytime I answer a call or someone answers my call Skype stops working. It is very frustrating and has been an all day thing. I have never had any problem like this before. PLEASE HELP!
The quickest method currently to resolve this, is to install over what you have using the beta release here: http://skype.com/go/getskype-beta
