Try to disable nVidia graphics card from device manager first and download Skype. Then re-enable nVidia again.

 

Click Start >> Run >> Type devmgmt.msc /s


Look for nVidia and disable it.

Re: unable to download skype

Which graphics card installed on your PC?

What debugging or key-logger applications (if any)?

 

Try to reset Internet Explorer settings.

Thanks for the feedback. Your current nVidia drivers were causing this faulty error message. It seems that installing the latest nVidia driver resolves the problem too.
