Use the full installer from this link:  http://www.skype.com/go/getskype-full

 

The install should only take a couple of minutes to complete.

I'm having the exact same problem, even with the link provided. This is very frustrating to say the least, I've tried the link provided and ones recommended by the so called experts and still nothing.

Thanks a lot for your suggestion. Was really getting fedup with the lot of time it took for installing skype versions downloaded from other sources. Your suggestion really helped me a lot. Works like a charm!! Thanks a ton

For this link, I received message, "Could not find this page".  From main Skype page, download is still attempting.  Way too long.  Suggestions for new user who really needs to set this up ASAP for business use?
