what do you mean by crashing? you need to be very specific.

Checking on Skype's web site, the only fix seems to be installing their beta version

and that works.

It has something to do with the Ads they are sending.

Skype 5.7 Beta for Windows - Featuring Facebook Video Calling - Skype

met someone with this similar problem too , biggest fail is that using the skype crash helper software didn't help , just does a search for solutions and always ends up with *no solution found*

what i did was head to

Old Version of Skype Download - OldApps.com


and started with the ones that was at least 2 years old and keep going up until one worked D: (for that specific case it was somewhere around 4.2)

told her not to update skype anytime soon as i think its quite unstable D:


i've confirmed that this does not happen in every pc obviously , but yeah.
