Check your Proxy Settings
In Internet Explorer, Go to, Tools >> Internet Options... >> Connections>> Lan settings , Use a proxy server... if it had been ticked, then... Remove that check. Make sure automatically detect settings is enabled. (Marked)
Friendfinder page is fine, The proxy settings is fine, automaticlly detect is ticked and the use proxy... is not ticked. But skype metro app still is stuck at the blue loading thingy and wont go to login screen
Quit modern Skype.
