hi,i use windows 7 desktop i recently got the notice on my skype to update to the new version 6.9 however when i began the update process i noticed on my windows firewall prompt that it had a different name for skype on the firewall prompt it listed program name as "Skype code sign" and under verified published it listed it as "Skype Software Sarl" normally when i downloaded or updated skype the windows firewall prompt listed the program name as just "Skype" and the verified publisher as "Skype technologies SA" the digital certificate on this new version 6.9 listed it being issued by microsoft code signing PCA and previous setup installations had the certificate issued  by verisign class 3 code signing. just wanted to double check that all this has changed?

This is indeed the correct certificate for the latest 6.9 version. Everything is OK.

I can't access my Skype too. I have over $ 35 In it. When I click Skype my contacts are not there as it used to be . I get a notice to allow changes to my computer from" Skype code sign , software Skype Sarl." that I don't know. I want my old Skype back. I don't know any code. A message appeared on my mobile phone--a XMAS gift I never use--that my code is xxxxxx. I am confused as I did not request a change. Please help me. Thanks
