[SOLVED] unterminated strng constant

2409 Views 10 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  Go The Power
Dear friends,

I have been using Skype 5.1 for quite some time. three days back I have upgraded it to 5.3. Since then I am getting the following trouble it says

script error on the page
error line1
character 147128
code 0
error:unterminated string constant
Url: home/1/combined.js?1f6f23a5521ef59540627d68e66dfae6

although the online Skype page comes the Skype home does not come it continues to search.

I did uninstall the Skype setup.exe and Skype.setup.applications and downloaded again and reinstalled but the same java script error returns and the Skype home which used to come instantaneously three days back with version 5.1 doesn't come. Also I am not able to use Skype.

First it used to come as Internet explorer error on the page . Now it comes as script error after uninstalling and re-down loading and installing Skype 5.3

Please suggest what can be done. I am having the internet explorer9 with Bing. Till to day I was using IE8 Beta. I thought it might have got some bug and upgraded it to IE9.

I look forward for your help. I tried to find the file combined.js but could not.

Shall I install both flash player and the shockwave ?.I think I am already running an updated version of flash player. however if you suggest I will install both of them. Now in the message I sent I wrote /1/ but on closer examination i noticed it as /i/ in the URL of my message. sorry for the mistake.
