Using these keyboard keys all together at the same time:

 

CTRL ALT DEL

 

Please click the "Processes" tab, then click the menu item "Image Name" do you see a running Skype.exe process, when you stop the Skype client progam, if so, select it, and click the "End process" button.

 

If not, please re-boot, what happens?

If i switch users on my computer I can log in. How do I get it to work on my user account!

When you check your processes, and clicked the process tab, do you have the "Show Processes from all users" checkbox checked? Most likely not, if you did and are using the Admin account, you would see another Skype.exe already running.

 

If you are going to be running at the same time multiple Windows Users that are trying to use Skype ("Note this could cause problems when trying to make/answer mutiple calls at the same time using single audio devices") you need to start ("Every") Skype client program using an extra command line option.

Reboot your computer in Safe Mode and then try to reset all Skype settings.

 

Go to Windows Start  (Win key +R) and in the Search/Run box type %appdata% and then press Enter or click the OK button. The Windows File Explorer will pop up. There locate a folder named “Skype”. Rename this folder to something different, e.g. Skype_old.

 

If you are on the latest Skype 6.5/6.6/6.7/6.9/6.10/6.11/6.13/6.14/6.16 version, then do also this:

 

Go to Windows Start and in the Search/Run box type %temp%\skype and then press Enter or click the OK button. Delete the DbTemp folder.

 

Reboot in normal mode and restart Skype.

 

N.B. If needed, you will still be able to re-establish your call and chat history. All data is still saved in the Skype_old folder.
