Could Not Login to Skype

Asked By 200 points N/A Posted on -

Skype is the one I've been using to make internet calls. It really helps me communicating easier to my clients. Yesterday, I got problems logging in to it. I know I am entering the correct Skype name and password. It didn't give me an error and it just goes back to the login screen not displaying any error.

I tried rebooting my pc to see if that could help but it didn't work. My OS is Windows 7 and working fine with Skype until yesterday. For the meantime I am using a different instant messenger program.

If someone knows a fix, feel free to put your suggestions here.

Sharon! No need to worry sometime problem occurs in programs. As you mentioned you're sure about, you're entering the correct password. Well, go to 'Start' then 'Control Panel', 'Add or Remove/ Uninstall software if you're using Windows 7' and uninstall Skype. Reboot your OS, and again install Skype. Hope it will work.
Another option is to click on 'Forget your password' option on the Skype login page and change your password then try.
