Windows 7: Skype crashing

09 Apr 2013   #21

Win 7 Pro x64 SP1, Win 7 Ult x86 SP1

Portable apps aren't "installed", so there is no uninstaller.
Usually they can even be from a flash drive, making them portable so they can be run on other PC's without installing anything.

In some searches I found, it seems some people that have free Skype crashing found it is caused by Ads for their specific User account...
Poorly crafted Ads that don't play well all the time causing the issue...

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bits 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1

You can always use registerseeker and through search and remove all the reg entries after which you only have to delete the skype programfile itself.
I noticed on two occasions that the new skype after an upgrade jumped up to 100% CPU.
Skype hanged the whole PC.
I reinstalled skype and again 100% CPU.
Removed the whole thing, installed another fresh version that finally worked.
Never had problems with skype before, so the latest upgrade was probably corrupted?
It's now version on windows 7 64 bit.

No problem, I should have made my reply clearer.

Windows 7 HP x64 SP1

I found a solution and now my Skype is working with no crashes. Seems others had the same issue when signing in with their Messenger accounts. Seems to be a bug in the latest 6.3 version of Skype. The solution was installing the previous version which is stable, and someone linked it in this thread below:
