Problem with skype on my computer

Whenever I download skype onto my computer (Gateway laptop, pretty standard, Vista), the whole system starts freaking out, it's almost like it slows everything down and then at some point, sometimes after just hours, sometimes after a day or two, it just freezes. once I take skype off, things return to normal. it's happened about three times, always the same reaction. this is a shame b/c it forces me to keep using msn messenger which i hate!

I have downloaded skype successfully onto my acer aspire netbook. where will I find it on the netbook?


Hi,

You can try to search it on your computer if you're using Windows XP. Open my computer than Press Control + F type the name of the program then select the your hard drive the click on Search.

Windows Vista and Seven: Click on Start then on the lower left under All Programs or Programs just type Skype. and you'll see the installer. The next time you download a file make sure you verify the specific location where you save it.

Thanks for using Fixya.

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.

Try shutting down your windows firewall. Sometimes the old windows will block the new windows installation. By disabling the firewall on vista that should allow to it to install. Becareful, there is not whole alot of drivers for windows 7 for printers just like windows vista problem.

CivCity Rome shuts down windows on vista laptop


That's wierd... O.K. yeah, its probably the vista thing... Or it might be the download. When you downloaded the game you might of gotten a faulty copy i.e. the game file has a virus. If it is the "vista" thing, than download the game onto another computer that can play it. Like how you said the game would work fine on your old XP PC, than it sounds like that's the computer you have to use. My advice, keep looking for different downloads to get the game, and keep searching for patches to try and fix the problem, if all else fails buy the game or call tech support. Hope this helps

Will not start up after system recovery done with disks.


If you have a Windows XP or Windows Vista CD (or if you can borrow one), insert it into the CD Drive and restart the system. Boot from the CD, and choose the "R" for Repair console.

Log onto the Windows installation you want to repair.

At the prompt, type FIXMBR and answer yes.

Type exit.
