    Skype problems.

    Post by Wade_Wilson on Tue Oct 30, 2012 10:13 pm

    Anyone else having problem with skype? It's refusing to work for me, even after I've uninstalled it and redownloaded it. It signs in and then goes "Hurr durr let's just freeze for no reason XD" and it's goddamn infuriating.

    Seems to be working for me.

    Has this been going on for a while? If not, I'd just say give it a little time.

    It might be nothing. See how it is in the morning. Do you need it urgently?

    I don't need it urgently but I was in the middle of talking to some online friends and this is f*cking ridiculous. Stuff doesn't stop working for no reason, and since I didn't do anything then Skype are responsible for this.

    Yeah, I bet they are. They've dropped my calls before too. :roll:

    Curiously, when Skype stops working and I go into task manager, it lists Skype twice in the processes menu. Might be the source of the problem, but there's no fix. It's also a newer version of skype than what I was using.

    That does sound like a possible culprit for sure.

    I discovered what the problem was: As I was running a new version of skype it was trying to load thousand of replies from dozens of old chats at once. I texted a friend, had him remove me from these old chats and now it works.
