  • If you are on a network that uses a proxy server, make sure your proxy settings are correct.
  1. In Internet Explorer: In the menu bar, click Tools > Internet Options > Connections > LAN settings.
  2. In Skype, in the menu bar click Tools > Connection options...
  • Make sure your firewall allows exceptions.
  1. If you are using Windows Firewall, click Start > Control Panel > Windows Firewall, and make sure that Don't Allow Exceptions is NOT ticked.
  2. If you are using a different firewall, click Start > All Programs and select your firewall. Make sure that exceptions are allowed. If Skype is listed in the Exceptions tab, remove it.
  3. Sign in to Skype. When prompted, select Yes to allow Skype to connect to the internet.
  • Ensure that Skype is able to use port 80 and 443 as alternatives for incoming connections.

I cant delete or unable my skype toolbar , because of a "2738" issue that even skype cant help me with, the thing is that evenm though i try to log in skype, it shows me a msg that says...


You could try Revo Uninstaller Pro to get rid of the toolbar : http://www.revouninstaller.com/ , but there is a temporary solution to get you back into skype. It's a small program called Trillian, that lets you connect to just about all the networking sites, and it also has support for skype, so you should be back up in no time. BTW, Trillian is free ;)
Hope that helps.
Cheers from NZ

L can see the skype icon on my deskstop,but can sign in to skype.


The problem might be in firewall.
Go to SKYPE -> Tools -> Options-> (tick) let Skype adjust my firewall -> Save

Try to Sign out again. Skype -> Sign Out

Another thing what you could do is remove Skype process in task manager. To do that:
Click control+alt+delete -> Processes tab -> highlight Skype.exe -> click End Process

The last thing I can suggest is making sure the ports work properly.
In Skype click Tools -> Connection options... -> (tick) Use port 80 and 443 as alternatives for incoming connections -> Save

I hope it helps.

Skype Goes OutBy VERNE G. KOPYTOFF

Millions of Skype users were unable to make calls for several hours on Wednesday because of technical problems that the Internet telephone service is still trying to fix.

Some users were unable to log in. For others who were already logged in, the service simply crashed.

Skype said in a blog post that it started investigating the problem after noticing that the number of people on its service was unexpectedly falling. Fixing the problem may take several hours, the company said, adding that it may be longer before other features like group video calling are restored to normal.

The troubles come as Skype, which spun off from eBay last year, prepares for an initial public offering. Meanwhile, Tony Bates, Skype's new chief executive, is trying to find new ways to make money outside the company's main business of charging users to call from their computers to landline and mobile phones.

The failure does not exactly help Skype's sales pitch to consumers as an alternative to traditional phone carriers. Nor does it reassure businesses, which Skype is trying to court as customers as part of its expansion plans.

Usually, Skype's service is problem-free.

Skype said the downtime was being caused by "supernodes," which are computers that "act a bit like phone directories" and enable callers to connect with others. Many of those "supernodes" - of which there are normally a large number - were taken offline by a problem with some versions of Skype's software, the company said.

Engineers are working to create "new 'mega-supernodes' as fast as they can, which should gradually return things to normal," Skype said.

Later on Wednesday, Skype posted a message on Twitter saying that its service was gradually returning to normal, but that it would still take several hours for all users to be able to sign in again.

Skype has 124 million active monthly users, as of June 30. Of those, only 8.1 million pay anything.
Mr. Bates has described himself as a fan of Skype's infrastructure, which has handled as many as 25 million users simultaneously.
