Try this installer for version 5.6.0.110:

 

http://download.skype.com/msi/SkypeSetup_5.6.0.110.msi

 

or, better yet, the current beta version:

 

http://download.skype.com/msi/SkypeSetup_5.7.0.123.msi

I am very impressed. You were able to respond immediately and provided the link to a version of the driver that worked on my PC. Thank you!

Glad you're up and running. If the beta .msi installer worked for you, you might want to try this link for the current full version: http://download.skype.com/msi/SkypeSetup_5.8.0.156.msi

I downloaded the alternate file they gave in the answer and it downloaded in Spanish. I now have a skype version I cannot read.
