Skype not working – Anger

Skype not working – (angry)

If you have recently updated your version of Skype™, there is an issue with the current (Beta) version of Skype™ (< 10 May 2013):

And you are using the Windows 7® Operating System with Service Pack 1 and all applicable security updates from Windows® Update –

Your installation of Skype™ may be causing you headaches.

Anger can be overly taxing on your sensibilities.

I had the “Automatic Updates” feature in Skype™ doing it’s job’…

I was very sorry for that, I ended up with that Windows®7 machine being practically worthless while I was on a Skype™ conference call.

The clock stopped running, other applications were “locked out” and even the good-old standby of ‘Ctrl+Alt+Del’offered no redemption.

The ONLY solution I was able to come across was to uninstall the Skype™ version 6.3 that was on my affected PC and re-install Skype™ version 6.0x

I found a site that I could post about (meaning you can download from it, and it is not my site) which has previous versions of software that are “out of circulation”.

Here is a quote from a person who had a different problem:

Dave Jannsen3 months ago

The windows 8 app is totally horrible, it’s unuseable. It flips to a screen and you can’t use other stuff on your desktop when you use skype. It’s unreal that they thought that was a good idea.


If this helps you solve the same problem, great!
