Hi,
It may be that your Government or other authorities are blocking Skype transmission over the Internet. That happens in the UAE.
Try using a personal VPN service to solve the problem. Skype works perfectly every time.

Hope this helps

How to download and install skype on my windows 7 desktop computer?


To install Skype, download the latest version from the Skype website. Do not download Skype from anywhere else.
The Skype install file is about 1MB in size. When you run the install file, the installer will download the Skype application (about 20MB) in the background. If your internet connection drops while this is happening, the installer will resume the download as soon as connectivity is restored.
If you do not wish to use the light installer, download the full installer (around 22MB).

The system requirements for running Skype on different operating systems are described below. Please ensure that your system meets these requirements, and that you have the equipment you need, before downloading the latest version of Skype.
Version : Windows XP / Windows Vista / Windows 7
(32-bit and 64-bit versions supported)
Processor : At least 1GHz
RAM : At least 256 MB
Additional software DirectX v9.0 or above

Hope this helps (remember to rating this answer and leave us a testimonial commetn).

I cannot connect to skype. Skype is downloaded, up-to-date, and I've already tried uninstalling and redownloading it. I cannot get it connected.


Try installing the 3.6 or 3.8 version if you are using the 64bit version of Windows 7, and run it in Vista compatibility mode
Right mouse click on the icon > Properties >compatibility mode>vista

I reload my skype again with new password and skype name and still cant download skype.


Uninstall the skype program completely then download and reinstall.

If issue still persist perform the system restore. You can choose the date of the restore point. Think when was the last time you were able to use the skype normally.

Lose webcam connection in Skype when using a headset


Have you checked the recording settings in Windows and in Skype? Try changing the default recording device to specifically indicate the device that has your headset plugged. I think the webcam also has a mic and that should not be selected.

Other thing to check is if there is some kind of resource conflict between your USB controller and audio card (use Device Manager).

Problem with skype and kaspersky


Pretty simply, your Antivirus is blocking Skype from acessing the internet. Personally, I'd uninstall it and use Avast! 
Anitvirus, which is free for home users. I use Avast! and Skype together and have had no conflicts. (www.avast.com)
You might also be able to find a whitelist somewhere in Kaspersky;'s preferences, but I''m not familliar with it and cannot tell you where.

Can't connect\, can't sign in


Hi,

To help resolve some common connection issues on Windows Vista, please
follow these steps:

1) Please make sure, that you are running the latest version of Skype
that you can download from http://skype.com/go/download

2) If Skype is running, please close it by right-clicking on the Skype
icon in the system tray (next to the clock) and selecting Quit Skype or
via File > Close.

3) If you are behind proxy server, make sure you have set all proxy
settings in Internet Explorer > Tools > Internet Options > Connections >
LAN settings and in Skype under Tools > Options > Connection.

4) If you are using Windows Firewall,
Go to Start menu > Control Panel > Windows firewall > Change settings
and select the Exceptions tab. Find Skype from the list, select it by
clicking on it once and press Delete. Click on Add Program and select
Skype from the list. If Skype is not on the list, click Browse and go to
C:\Program Files\Skype\ Phone\ and select skype.exe. Close the windows
by pressing OK button.

5) If you are using any other firewalls or anti-virus software, please
make sure, that Skype is in the exceptions list. We have firewall
guides at http://www.skype.com/help/guides/firewall.html .
If your firewall or anti-virus software is not listed there, please
follow the guide supplied with your software or contact the software
manufacturer for step by step instructions.

6) If you are using a router, please configure port forwarding for
Skype. You can find guides for an extensive list of routers on
http://www.portforward.com/english/applica.../Skypeindex.htm
Please note that we are not responsible for this page and contents
might change unexpectedly.

7) Start Skype

Make sure your status is set to online via "File" > "Change Online
Status" > select "Online".


If the above did not help, please try the following:
Go to Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools and start 'Windows
Firewall with advanced security'. If you don't see "Administrative
tools" in the Control Panel, please make sure, that the Classic Mode is
selected from the left side of the Control Panel window.

Click 'Inbound Rules' > 'New Rule'. Make sure 'Program' is selected.
Click 'Next'. Select 'This program path' and click Browse. Browse to
C:\Program Files\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe. Click 'Open'. You are taken back
to the rules creation window, click 'Next'.

Check 'Allow the connection' and click 'Next'.

Make sure that all three options are ticked: 'Domain', 'Private',
'Public' and click 'Next'.
In the Name box type 'Rules for Skype' or whatever you like.
Description may be left empty. Click Finish.

Now select 'Outbound Rules'.

Click 'New Rule'. In the window that pops up make sure 'Program' is
selected.
Click 'Next'. Select 'This program path' and click Browse. Browse to
C:\Program Files\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe. Click 'Open'. You are taken back
to the rules creation window, there click 'Next'.

Check 'Allow the connection' and click 'Next'.

Make sure that all three options are ticked: 'Domain', 'Private',
'Public' and click 'Next'.
In the Name box type 'Rules for Skype' or whatever you like.
Description may be left empty. Click Finish.

Please restart your computer after doing this and try launching Skype
thereafter.

Finally you could try below:
This is a regular Vista idiocy, occurring from time to time to random applications and has nothing to do with Skype. Thanks, Mr. Gates.

How to fix it:

1. Go to your Skype program directory, then navigate to the subdirectory Phone.
2. Right-click the Skype executable, select Properties.
3. Go to Compatibility tab.
4. Select compatibility mode, and choose Run this program in compatibility mode - Windows XP Service Pack 2.
