There are a couple of things you can try.
First make sure to go to Library/Application Support/

See if there are any Skype folders there and get rid of those too when you remove the app.

You can also download a Freeware app called AppCleaner it removes all the support files included with the app if there are any when you dump it in the trash.

You may also want to open you keychain and make sure it isn't holding onto and passwords.
This can be found in Applications/Utilities

I can't log on skype, it says your skype name and password were not recognised.


Maybe your Skype ID and password does not match. Either you entered the Skype ID or the password incorrectly. If you are not sure of your Skype name & password, try registering a new account instead. This time, better keep the Skype name and password, don't ever forget it. =)

Web cam


Dear Digjay,

Please Rate this solution.

for using webcam in yahoo messenger,all you have to do is go to the yahoo messenger settings and set the camera. On the bottom of my messenger there is a camera button that turns the cam on.

for installing skype


Downloading and Installing Skype Step1 Go to the Skype Web site (see the Resources section below for links to download Skype for Windows, Mac, and Linux users) and download the SkypeSetup.exe executable. (The executable gets downloaded under the Program Files folder under a directory called Skype that gets automatically created. A Skype Setup icon is also automatically seen on your desktop.) Step2 Click on the SkypeSetup icon that is on your desktop. A Skype Setup wizard then appears. You will get a warning window asking if you want to Run or Save this file, SkypeSetup.exe. Click Run. Note: Another confirmaton message may come up asking if you are sure you want to Run this software. Click "Run" again. Step3 Follow the instructions on the Skype Setup Wizard to complete the installation of the Skype software. At the end of the installation you will be asked to setup a Skype account. Step4 A Skype window appears and if you have never used Skype before you have the option of creating a Skype account. A link is seen on that window mentioning the following: "Don't have a Skype name?" Click on this link and it opens up another "Skype - Create a New Account" window where you have to type in your Full Name and then you have to type in a "Skype Name" and a Skype "Password" and "Repeat Password" in the respective fields on that window. Note: Jot down this Skype Name and Skype Password as you will need it everytime you open the Skype application. Step5 Click on the "Sign in" button. Note: After having created this new Skype Name account for the first time, the next time you open Skype again, your Skype name will automatically appear in the Skype name field. All you need to do is to type in your Skype password and click the "Sign in" button. Step6 Follow the instructions in the "Getting Started" guide to "Add a Contact" using the "Add Contact" button, to test your headset and microphone using the "Skype Test Call Feature," to set up a Conference Call with a business colleague or friend, and to explore all the other features in Skype. Step7 Once you have installed the Skype software, there are 2 ways by which you can open the Skype software application. Click on the Skype icon on your desktop Or Double click on the "x" icon in your desktop's system tray to start Skype at any time. Note: Once the Skype window comes up, the "x" checkmark then changes to a green checkmark to indicate that the Skype application is currently running on your computer. It changes back to an "x" mark when you have "Signed out" of Skype and Skype is no longer running on your computer.

Please rate this solution.Thank you.

Skype password


Yes near the login you can use the recover password feature, and it will be sent to your email.

If all else fails you can register a new account. Just remember your password for future use.

Thank you for trying Fixya, and good luck.
