Scan your computer and see if there's any virus on it
http://housecall.trendmicro.com/

or check for trojan or malwares, or spyware
http://www.safer-networking.org/

see if your computer and os can satisfy the requirements of skype:

  • System requirements
  • PC running Windows 2000, XP or Vista. (Windows 2000 users require DirectX 9.0 for video calls).
  • Internet connection – broadband is best (GPRS is not supported for voice calls).
  • Speakers and microphone – built-in or separate.
  • For voice and video calls we recommend a computer with at least a 1GHz processor, 256 MB RAM and of course a webcam.
  • ForHigh Quality Video calls you will need a high quality video webcam andsoftware, a dual-core processor computer and a fast broadbandconnection (384 kbps).

My skype account frozen


Since Microsoft got involved Skype has been having a LOT of issues. Delete Skype and redownload the file. When you log back on all your stuff will still be there. If it still locks up it may be a SKYPE browser button that's gone bad tripping up the main app. I hav a remnant in Chrome where I can have Skype closed but if someone calls the alarm tones go off, but no way to answer. GIANT pain in the ***.
