My Skype is crashing when I try and use video call. I get error message " instructions @0X00000000 referenced memory at memory could not be written" Like everyone else I have tried everything. I have also downloaded my webcam again and nothing. I have uninstalled skype and reinstalled it. I have changed compatibility settings. I have used device manager to see if there has been any hardware changes and to update drivers. I have run windows update. I have checked security program to make sure it is not blocking skype and I have turned off my pop up controller in browser. Help soon please

Mine is doing the same thing....wish it would get fixed.  I uninstalled and reinstalled several times but no luck.  PLEASE Skype, fix this issue ASAP!

Well, it's not just me having this problem then.

I have been trying to talk with my mom who's overseas all night and could not. Had uninstalled and reinstalled multiple times. Nothing helped.

I love Skype, but this is so frustrating.

I guess I just have to wait and see.

So......... does anyone know what to do?

I was using skype just a few minutes ago, and all of a sudden: "Skype is not working, windows is closing the program blah blah blah."

So, I re-opened skype... didn't work, still crashed.
So, I restarted my computer, and re-opened skype... didn't work, still crashed.

 

So, I un-installed and re-installed skype... dind't work, still crashed.
