Have you already change your Skype password?

Does this issue occurs to only for a one contact?

yes I've reset my password, and I haven't try it with other logins, because this skype name works normally at other computers

Were you able to use Skype without any issues earlier?
What’s the recent change that you made to your computer after which this issue has started to occur?
What is the type of internet connection you are using?
Do you have any security software installed on the computer?
When was the last time it was working fine?
Do you have youtube mp3 converter / facebook video or similiar software installed on your computer?

 

try to connect to Skype through a proxy

 

In Skype Click Tools >> Click Connection options...to configure your proxy settings.

 

type any port between 1024 and 65535

 

In the drop-down menu that appears in the middle of the connection options, select the HTTPS.

 

In the Host box type the proxy IP address 188.127.227.224 , In the box labeled Port, write the port of the proxy 3128, Uncheck enable uPnP then click Save.

 

Exit Skype : From the system tray >> right click on the skype icon and click "Quit"

 

Restart Skype and sign in.

Tamim

1. Skype was working without any issue for couple of month. 

 

2. It happens unexpectedly, just normally working, didn't install anything, and after the certain post it just stuck.

3. I am using wired connection and WiFi, skype doesn't work at any of them

4. No I have no security on my computer, just global company security, but no one of my colleges doesn't face with the same problem

 

5. Last time was at Thursday noon, after in stuck, I've tried to roll back system.

 

6. Non of those program are installed on my computer.

 

I would like to thank you about the recommendation according PROXY IT HELPED!

Now my skype is working normally THANKS A LOT!!!

I have come to the conclusion that Skype on windows * is useless..   I can't get it to do anything.   I went back to the native version.  Blah!  this is stupid...

I tried to download Skype for my desktop vs using the app and I can download the file fine, but when I click on it and give my permission for changes, nothing happens.

Skype support instructions work fine to install a desktop version, however it cannot make calls.  The 'call phone' icon never comes up off shaded and clicking it does nothing.  Double clicking a contact - nothing.

 

Cannot make calls *period*

 

Using 'Start Screen' version is awkward, since my application data is all on the desktop.  kludgey.

 

Tamin's REVO Uninstall suggestion KILLED MY WinHATE install!  I had to REFRESH Load the OS - AND - ALL MY APPS again.  I'm really interested in some ELSE's ideas, here.  Perhaps someone...oh, I don't know...who WORKS FOR SKYPE, perhaps.

 

I have new Lenovo H5s/AMD PC.
