Question about Skype IM

I can not get in my skype account

I don't manage to get in my skype account. I already tried many times to change my password. So I already repeat the skype process to change a password and everything goes right and even received the email saying that my new password has been set. BUT when tried to use my new password to go in in my account for my surprise it is shown this red lable saying that I have a wrong skype name or password, and blá blá bla´. So I have submitted already 3 support request and no support so far only an email saying that my request will be answered in within 48 hours. I have an skype number and credits and I can not use either of them when I can not log in my account. That is ridiculous! HELP...

    My account is also blocked for several days despite several support requests and emails to csl2@skype.net.

    It's great when everything works but if you have the slightest bit of trouble then you are bu&&ered!

    Youcan then expect to be ignored, receive canned responses, not be able tospeak or online chat to anyone at skype and receive requests forfeedback on their customer service!!

    I'm sure there are no humans behind the scenes - it's all run by computers and robots!!

    Despite countless attempts, I kept getting a message that my password was invalid, or that username and password did not match etc.  Then, all of a sudden, I logged in. Now as I am trying to change my password  I am getting a message that the "old password" is invalid. Any ideas?

My Skype account is account block


Finding out that your Skype account has been hacked can be a nasty shock. It means that you lose access to your contacts, at least temporarily. This can potentially mean that you cannot get in touch with certain people. Furthermore, a hacked account may mean that the hacker is using your Skype credit or even your PayPal money to place calls of his own.

Change Your Password Changing your Skype password, if you can, helps limit the hacker's access to your account. With any luck, the hacker has only changed your password and not also the email address associated with your Skype account. Visit Skype's "Create an Account or Sign In" page and click the "Forgotten your password?" link. https://login.skype.com/account/login-form?intcmp=sign-in&return_url=https%3A%2F%2Fsecure.skype.com%2Faccount%2Flogin Provide the email address associated with your account in the box that appears for the purpose, and then click "Get password." Visit the inbox for the account you provided. You should have an email from Skype. Click the link within this email to reset your password. b> Reporting the Issue b> Let Skype know about the fact that your account has been compromised. Do this regardless of whether you were successfully able to regain access to your account by resetting the password. Submit a support request on Skype's "Identity theft/Account takeover" topic by visiting the associated help page. Click the blue "Continue support request" button at the bottom of the page. Choose the "Email support" option, and then fill out the required information. This includes your full name, your Skype name and a specific description of your issue. You may also need to provide the email address you used when you initially created the Skype account, even if you changed the address associated with the account later. Safety Precautions b> Take some safety precautions to stop the situation from getting any worse. If your Skype account is linked to your PayPal account, for example, contact PayPal immediately. Inform them of possible fraudulent charges and to ask them to refuse any further Skype charges. If you use your hacked Skype password for other accounts, such as online banking or email, change those passwords to prevent the hacker from gaining access to those accounts. b> Avoiding a Recurrance b> Having your Skype account hacked once is probably more than enough for your taste. Don't let it happen again. Create a strong password when you regain access to your Skype account. Include letters, numbers and punctuation in this password to make it harder to figure out. In the future, if you receive emails that appear to be from Skype and ask you to sign in or provide your password, do not do so. Instead, go directly to the Skype website and sign in to your account there. Be careful when signing in to your Skype account in a public place, as someone may watch over your shoulder and figure out your password. Hope it helps.

I want to creat new skype id


I got your answer from: https://support.skype.com/en-us/faq/FA829/How-can-I-run-two-Skype-accounts-on-the-same-computer

In order to use more than one Skype account on the same computer at the same time you need to start a new instance of Skype:
  1. From the Windows taskbar, click Start > Run (or press the Windows and R keys on your keyboard at the same time)
  2. In the Run window, enter the following command (include the quotes) and press OK:
"C:\Program Files\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe" /secondary

If you get any error messages, please copy and paste the exact command from this email and try again.

Please keep in mind that if you have changed the installation path for Skype then you need to enter the correct path for the Skype.exe file.

If this solution fails, you can try another option:
  1. Find the Skype executable file (Skype.exe) in: C:\Program Files\Skype\Phone\
  2. Right click on it and choose: Send to > Desktop (create shortcut)
  3. Locate the shortcut on the desktop, then right-click on it and choose Properties
  4. In the Target field, add: /secondary. The Target field should now be: "C:\Program Files\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe" /secondary
  5. Click OK. You can now start a new instance of Skype every time you double-click on the new shortcut.
For Skype 3.8 and earlier Requirements: Windows XP, Two Skype User accounts

First, create a new Windows user by going to the Control Panel and clicking on User Accounts. Choose Create a new account and follow the steps to set permissions. We also suggest setting a password for the new user by clicking on the newly created user and choosing the Set Password option. The new user will also require admin rights on your PC.

Next, create a shortcut to Skype or make a copy of the shortcut that is already in the Start menu. Right-click this new shortcut and choose Properties. On the bottom of the first page there is a button labelled Advanced... . Click this button and select Run with different credentials. Select OK, and then select OK again to close the Properties dialog.

You're all set. Whenever you use this new shortcut it will ask for a Windows username and password. Enter the Skype Name and password of the user you created earlier by choosing The following user: option. Click OK and you'll have a second instance of Skype. It will require that you sign in with your Skype Name and password the first time.

To help automate the Run as trick you can create a second desktop icon for Skype and modify its properties. Click the Advanced button and check the box Run with different credentials. After clicking on the modified icon it will ask you to sign in as another user. Changing the icon graphic also helps ensure you click on the correct icon.

If you have multiple USB headsets or USB Phones you should be able to set up both instances of Skype to use a different sound device.

My grandson downloaded my Skype, he opened my account into his email site and not my email....so you send me new password and I don't think it works because it's link to his email account. Now...


After you get the password from him you'll be able to log on and change the account settings. Your other choice is to open a new account. I would suggest opening a new account, unless you have a large list of contacts, this will not take long.

Hi there...i have one skype account with name ,, harsanmarius,, and pasword used to be 201976 all my life , but from 1 weak somebody take it from me , my exboyfriend ....and he change pasword ...can i have...


The only problem here is if your ex-boyfriend also managed to changed the email address registered on your skype. If not, launch the Skype application, and click forgot password. If you still have access to the email registered to this Skype account, then you will be receiving the instruction in your email plus a temporary code to change your password.

Forgot my pasword


If you have forgotten your password, the only way to access your Skype account again is to have a new password code sent to the email address you used when you registered with Skype.
After you request a new password code (this website: https://secure.skype.com/account/password-reset-request), you will receive an email containing a link to Skype's secure website and a code to change your password. The code will be valid for 6 hours from the time of generation. If you do not use it within this timeframe, you will have to request another one.

Want to have all my skype info on another computer with my same name lunar_module dont want lunar _module 1 or any other name


Just install Skype on the other computer, and enter your existing username and password.
When installing, it asks you is you already have an account. If you can't find it, skip creating an account and enter in your username and password.
Otherwise, if you already have created an account, click "Skype" in the top left hand corner, next to Contacts, and click "Sign Out".
Enter your username and password.
