Above solution solved problem, But this is Not an acceptable problem to have. At all. At no point should I have had to follow the above steps to fix the problem and I expect a hotfix be down the pipes soon to fix it. As was said before: When your Beta Build is more stable than the Current Build you are doing it wrong.

Proper registration of JavaScript files should have done the trick. What is the version of Internet Explorer installed on your computer?

 

Using your Internet Explorer (no other browser but only IE) open this page:

 

http://www.mistered.us/test/alert.shtml

 

Click on the “Simply Click This Button” button and watch the response.

 

See also this:

 

http://community.skype.com/t5/Windows/Error-when-logging-ing-Skype/td-p/415047/page/2

 

When both Internet Explorer and JavaScript are "up-and-go" you will not need any more to rename the "login" folder. You should also be able to start Skype using the original shortcut or have it to start with Windows.
