    if all of you got the same error around the same time then i suspect its a stupid update that crashed your skype try this

    uninstall your skype, download the link below its and old version of skype 5.1

    HTML:
    http://www.skype.com/intl/en-us/get-skype/on-your-computer/windows/premium/
    im currently using 5.1 right now have no problems at all..turn off that auto update feature if you want to

    heaps of skype errors happening at the moment, probably because skype has been brought by microsoft :p

    follow skype on twitter for up-to-date info on the errors most of us are seeing
