skype cannot resolve this. i think its just a problem thats happens with everyone, & if you use Skype too much , that can also be why it crashed .. all i can say is try uninstalling it then downloading it again

The same has happened to me also. I tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it multiple times, and it always freezes up and says "Skype has stopped working."

Windows 7 had a lot of updates just two days ago.  Down load the beta version 5.7. It will fix the problem. Smile life is short.

I can not open SKYPE on desktop (i/Mac). All of a sudden this app "is not supported??"

The icon in the dock now shows the skype symbol with a circle and a line (like a stop sign symbol), instead of the regular SKYPE icon. I still have lots of credit on this account. Now what?? when trying to re-install it tells me not supported etc. Thanks for any assistance. Lyaf001@gmail.com
