I am having trouble using skype on my Windows 7 laptop. Until recently, it was fine, in fact it has been working on this laptop for well over a year,but now when I start Skype I get a message saying Skype Home unavailable. On my netbook under Windows 7 starter, it works fine...
I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Skype, have doen a system restore, but nothing works. What is going on?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Have you checked your own connection status on Skype? Is it Online? The status icon (the one left of your name) must be solid green with a white checkmark inside. You can try to change the status using the dropdown arrow next to this icon.
Sorry, I meant to say green light won`t come on. Am suspecting firewall problem. I have Panda security and next to Skype it says custom settings??
Thank you for that. But I`m kind of old and this is scary. When I go into the firewall settings, I can change the 3 Skype entries to "allow inbound and outbound connections " Then this message appears----Do you really want to restore communication permission? Keep in mind that the permission you might have set will be lost after installation----
Do I just go ahead and click--yes--?
