Hello, Quincy!  I have read your problem. It’s a very tiny issue. I think it can be happened because of virus attack or anything unexpected occurrence. Whatever, you can solve it by total reinstalling Skype. At the same time, you can use “Advanced System Care” Uninstaller to uninstall previous data from registry. Hopefully, the new installed application will be working better. Try this!

If Skype is working perfectly well and this error is new, try updating the application. Download the latest Skype for Windows and upgrade your existing version. See if this works. If it doesn’t work, try disabling your antivirus temporarily and then run Skype again. If Skype work, add the program to the exclusions list of your antivirus. On your antivirus, go to “Settings” then expand “Real-time protection” item.

Look for something like “Exclusions,” select it, and then add Skype to the list. This should now allow the program to execute without triggering the error again. But if this doesn’t work, check again if your computer meets the requirements. The latest Skype supports Windows XP Service Pack 3, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8.x, and Windows 10.

It requires at least 1 GHz or faster processor, 512 MB RAM, and Microsoft DirectX 9.
