Skype Crashes

whenever i try to do anything in skype after my computer goes to sleep mode, it crashes. iv had this problem before, and i was told to change the name of the skype folder in appdata to something different so skype could make and use a new one, but that didnt help. iv tried re-installing skype twice, but again, nothing changed. i have to restart my computer if i want skype to work. what do i do?

Re: Skype Crashes

Have you tried running it as an administrator?

Re: Skype Crashes

Locate your shortcut or the Skype program itself. Right Click > Properties > Compatibility > Run as Admin. It will be the bottom box to check. Let me know what happens. I'll continue looking into your problem.

Re: Skype Crashes

I found this yesterday. Use the options that apply to your problem. http://community.skype.com/t5/Windows/Skype-Problems-Troubleshooting-Procedures-Windows/td-p/52260
