Skype drops call after a few seconds

I have windows 7, used skype yesterday and I answer and call and the call is dropped after a few seconds and a rejection pops up:

skype has stopped working:

A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.

closed program.

HOW DO I FIX THIS. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling, and shuting down computer, restarting computer. I don't know whats wrong.

Re: Skype drops call after a few seconds

the beta version has wrked for me-I tested it after installing it with BOTH IM messaging my contacts AND ALSO video chatting and they can see and hear me-so video chating DOES WORK FOR ME with this beta 7 installation-thttp://www.skype.com/intl/en/get-skype/on-your-computbiter/windows/beta/  Install this latest version of skype which fixes this crashing issue-many of us had installed this version and it wrks--I by the way have windows 7/64bitry it
