Can't connect on Windows 8 x64

I am using Windows 8 x64 on a desktop.

My username and password are correct (I have changed password to be sure) but I just keep getting the "Skype can't connect" message.

I have made sure that Windows firewall allows Skype to run, also that my antivirus allows it.

Skype shows version

Behind a proxy server but it should detect that automatically as far as I know.

Thanks for any help
