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

    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?

What is a skype account and why is it blocked and not allowing me to sign into my account. I do not even know what Skype account is

Skype is an internet service that allows you to make video phone calls with other Skype users. It is like a phone call, but you get to see each other on your screens. It requires a Skype account (you have to register at, and download the client if you need too. Windows 8 comes with Skype already loaded, but you still need an account. Basic service is free, within the country, but they sell premium services if you need them.

In Windows 7, the logon screen usually contains a picture that you choose when setting up the computer and a default user name. Since I purchased my computer from Best Buy, the picture was already set and the user name was simply User.
Not very unique! The first thing I did when I got my computer was to change the user name and change my user picture. That is what I’ll explain in this article.
Change User Name in Windows 7First, click on Start and then Control Panel. Then click on User Accounts and Family Safety.
On the next screen, click on the User Accounts heading at the very top.

Finally, click on Change your account name to actually change the user name. If you want to change the user name for a different account, click on Manage another account.5a8fcb6.png
Now type in the new user name that you desire and click the Change button.
That’s it! Once you click Change, you’ll be back to the previous screen with a preview of the new login screen.
Change User Picture in Windows 7To change the user account picture, simply click on the Change your account picture link in the second step above.
You can either choose from the default pictures in Windows 7 or you can click the Browse for more pictures link. Once you have chosen the desired picture, click on the Change Picture button.
Change/Create User Password in Windows 7If you want to create a password for your user account or change the current password, click on the Change Windows password link.
If you don’t already have a password setup for your user account, you can click on the Create a Windows 7 password for your account link, otherwise you can click Change your password.
So those are the most common three tasks when managing user accounts in Windows 7.

Password...I dont know my password

If it's been awhile since you used Skype to communicate with friends abroad or family back home, you might draw a big blank when it's time to type in your Skype username.

Skype requires a username and password from users to log in to the service.
You choose this username and password when you register for a Skype account.

By using Skype's recovery options and the email address used to register the account, you can retrieve your Skype username with ease.

Navigate to the Skype homepage online at
Click "Sign In."

Click "Forgotten your Skype Name?" under the Skype Name entry box.

Type the email address you used to register the account in the box that appears.
Click "Get Skype Name."

Skype will email you a link to that address to recover your username.
Click on the link inside the email sent by Skype.

A page will open displaying your username.
Change your password in three easy steps.

This helps to keep your new password secure.
You will need to fill in your email address.

We'll email you a temporary code.
Use the code to change your password on our secure website.

Screen name on Hp 2000 says locked underneath it. Password tried too many times. Need to redo it with a new name and password

Not sure if this will work without some user's account being open, but try starting Task Manager. Press Ctrl/Alt/Delete. Press all 3 keys at the sme time. There should be a "reset password" option. But again, I don't know if you can do this unless a user is already signed in. If it doesn't work, the computer should have a "public" or "guest" account. When it wants your password, look for "change users". Click on that and select he guest, or public, or whatever it is labelled, account, and you'll be in the computer, but not in your owner's account. And if you try the task manager/change password from the guest account it may not let you do anything with your owner's account. If all else fails, call HP at 800-474-6836.

My grandson downloaded my Skype, he opened my account into his email site and not my 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.

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.
