Maybe you got a outdated version of skype? You can probably find a newer version throught google searchs like "Newest version of skype" or something like that.
You're firewall or antivirus program may be the reason for it to, they can block things like that without giving you a warning, try turning off your firewall for a minute and try to call again, if that works, turn on the firewall again and then allow "skype" accsess throught the firewall manually. I could give you more info about this to, but then I need to know what firewall system you got.

Skype to skype calls and video calls is free. But if you want to call mobiles and landlines you need to get Skype credits or subscription. There is One month free unlimited word subscription that you can try if you have a valid payment method.
It mean some has hacker you box and change your password.To check if your account in still valid. Follow this steps. Go to yahoo mail. Click on i can't access my account. Click on my account has been compromised. Enter you ID and code shown below, Then verify your account and follow the steps.And mail will be sent to you.
Skype uses your Intenet Connection. If you want a video conference you will need high speed internet connection. The faster the better. I would nont recommend on dial-up connection or you lag, meaning it will jitter.
Skype is a great way to communicate.. I prefer it over other programs as it better suits a traveling person.
Open a Skype Account. Go to www.skype.com
(Computer->Computer) Search for your friends online. Add them by (Contacts / Add Contact). This is a free service
(Computer->Phone). This is called SKYPE OUT. You can dial any fixed or mobile phone anywhere around the world if you add credit in your SKYPEOUT account (go to www.skypeout.com). Paypal and Credit card are supported. You can either add 10 EURO or 25 EURO at one time. Calls are cheap (depending on country), and are relatively comparable to IP cards. Remember to dial the country prefix!
(Phone->Computer). This is called SKYPE IN. This is a VERY convenient service. SKYPE IN (www.skypein.com)allows you to reserve a phone number in a country of choice. The cost is 30 EURO a year, or 10 EURO for 3 months. This allows you to hand out a local number to friends / work collegues in a different country (so they are charged only a local call), and when they call you, your SKYPE on your computer will ring (no matter where you are in the world!). This is handy if you want to have a number on your business card for a country that you do not reside. The only cost to you is the yearly rental of the number, and the caller is charged a normal phone call charge.
Things You'll Need:
need a Headset with a Microphone. The best to use is a set with the TWO
plugs (microphone and speaker). Avoid the USB type headset (these can
be painful when trying to remove the device). Th
You'll also need a Credit Card if you want to use SKYPEIN or SKYPEOUT
A computer! Preferably a newer computer with a better-than-modem connection.
- WebCam. Version 2.0 and later supports video. Although not
particularly flash - its still pretty cool (remember you'll need a fast
internet connection for video)
You can call PC to PC using the yahoo messenger....you can call PC 2 Phone using yahoo messenger as well but for that you will need to subscribe yahoo voice...In you enquiry it's not clear which or where you facing the issue...if it is yahoo to yahoo try patch the yacscom.dll ...then try call...Good Luck
I suspect that the 3 month unlimited calls worldwide is only valid for new customers.
You will have to contact skype directly to get them solve the problem.
all I can suggest without being related to skype in anyway is to cancel your account or cancel the charge on your credit card. Then possibly use another credit card or for example your wifes details instead so that they don't revert back to your old account.
