    My skype decides to shut down 10 seconds after starting it up.

    I did a search online and two solutions I found were
    1) Erase the shared.xml file
    2) Stopped the auto updater (even put the file to my recycle been)

    I also downloaded skype 5.1 to no availe
    i know alot of smart people use skype here - anyone had a similar problem?

    any ideas?

    OS ?

    Sounds like you have something crashing / not properly installed/upgraded.

    What is imo.im?

    My os is windows 7 64 bit.

    I was up for 2 hours looking into this crap.

    I also tried to un-install a couple of times.

    Download the latest version of Skype after uninstalling the current installed version. If everything else fails, try skype forums.

    Also Don't forget to backup the conversations before uninstalling the current version.
