Hi, I'm Pete. Welcome to JustAnswer! I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply ASAP.
Skype is now part of Microsoft.
If your Windows Live Account was registered with a date of birth that sets it as less than 18, the only way around it is to create a new account.
What is the full error message that you are getting?
When you get the "Skype can't connect" error, to fix it you will need to first download the latest version of Skype.
If you’ve already updated to the latest version of Skype and you still get the “Skype can’t connect” error, try the following:
Check your firewall settings.
There may be a firewall blocking your access to Skype.
Check your proxy settings.
If you connect to the internet through a proxy server, for example at work, you may need to manually configure Skype to connect.
Change your password.
