Hi there im not sure what the issue is but my skype connection is always slow and have no idea what it could be or how to fix it, i have a fast internet connecton, could any one help me in the right...

Do a speedtest here:
This will tell you the speed of your internet connection. If the results here are low compared to what speed you think you should be getting, contact your ISP who can perform tests at their end to tell if the problem is with them or your computer.
If the problem is with your computer (or you want to try this before contacting your ISP) run scans with the following programs, in safe mode if possible:
These will find and remove any spyware or malware which may have infected your computer and cause it to slow down.
If none of the above helps and the problem is specific to Skype, uninstall it from the Programs and Features section of the Control Panel. Then restart your computer, and reinstall it by downloading the latest version from here:
Best of luck!

I have an integral webcam on my computer and need to know how to communicate wih other people online

Go to and sign up for an account and you can download their software and use that. I use it to communicate with my sister in Germany. There are other programs like IM which will allow you to do the same. It's just a matter of finding out what the people you want to communicate with are using. In my case, my sister uses Skype, that's why I use it. Skype is not the only program that allows you to do that so talk to your friends and do a little research to figure out what works best for you. Good Luck and have fun!

Download reaches 45% then goes no further .....

have you tried downloading the app during a diff time, or try to check if there is a firewall or any security software which is not allowing you to download that type of software, check if this happens to all your downloads, try to download in safe mode with networking.
