I have the same problem and also I am unable to search under Contacts for phone numbers, Skype names. The Search field remains grey and unresponsive. I have deleted Skype and re- downloaded it to no availe. My Skype on my pc is quite different. I can see all my contacts listed on the left and see who is on line as well
