Thank you Nick for your help but still not working and I have tried to download and install the Skype as you suggested but I have to admit I am not computer savy and am getting a little confused with all the instructions or perhaps I am choosing the wrong buttons to install again ad it isn't that clear to me anyway. I will tell you what I done when I clicked into install Skype and we can take it from there. I clicked download mac windows can't open this file appeared so clicked web server to find program file type Mac Intosh OX disk copy image file appeared then gave me files to chose from I chiose Vista Windows as that is what my computer is and I didn't know others then I got more confused so just decided to talk to you. I am sorry but you are going to have to be patient with me as I really am scared I am going to do the wrong thing and buggar my computer. So when I click to download the Skype what button do I use is it the downloads up the top or is it the mac windows down the bottom as once I click on either of them I don't know what to do from their Nick I must be thick so sorry.

Windows

Thanks Carol.

Your question was under Mac. That is fine. Please do the following steps:

Exit/quit Skype.
CLICK HERE to download and install Skype.
Run installation.
Open Skype and see if you can use it normally.

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
