Computer nerds? Skype problem
« on: May 16, 2011, 06:43:52 PM »
Hey, I was wondering if any resident tech guys could help me with this. I use Skype quite a lot, but for the past week and a half or so, it seems to crash whenever I open it. It stays open for a few seconds, then a message comes up saying that Skype has stopped responding and will now close down, blah blah blah. I have no idea how to fix it.
Mozilla Firefox and Mozilla Thunderbird also are totally nonfunctioning on my computer, and it all happened at the same time. I have done several virus scans and health checks since, and all seems well.
My main concern however is still getting Skype running again... anyone?

We always have. I am in no way a computer nerd but, have you had any recent updates? I know when firefox updated to 4.0 on my laptop it ran like a virus, shutting everything down, locking it up. Face book didn't work, AR barely loaded, couldn't get email to load and Skype stopped working. After uninstalling and going back to 3.whatever version I have had no further issues.

Just uninstall it and download it again.. That normally fixes most problems. As far as what caused the issues I have no idea.

Updates... and maybe try out Google Chrome as an alternative to Firefox? It could all be coincidental, I've had shit like that happen where two things break at once and I'm SURE they're related somehow, but it ends up being two totally different issues.
