Very strange Skype problem.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have recently been trying to install skype and it will not have any of it.

After downloading skype and installing it, I get this message.

"Error: Unfortunately the Skype executable is corrupted. Please re-install."

I have tried reinstalling an older version, tried compressing it, un compressing it, running as an admin, installing it to a different drive, running Trillian and running skype as a plugin.

I got no anti virus running atm and my firewall is off.

No matter what I try it is still "Corrupted".

Now I would try and posting on the Skype website but I know I will end up getting treated like a moron for a few days.

Please help, I know you guys can come up with something!

Thanks!

Uninstall Skype, Start>Regedit. Once you're in Regedit, go to the Software folder in both USER. In the Software folders there's a Skype folder, delete that. Then try and reinstall Skype and see if the error persists.

Nope, still persists.

I have noticed when I restart it technically opens up, but after inputting the username and pass, it displays the same error message.

I also noticed it does come up in the event viewer but I cant make heads or tails of it.
