Windows 7: Skype program updating

26 May 2010   #1

Windows 7 Professional (64bit)
Skype program updating

lve got this weird issue thats started happening recently.. basically when l click the program update option it states there is always an update, when l click download the window closes... and nothing happens.

l did try reinstalling but l still have the issue afterwards.. l did also notice that skype doesnt start with windows any more either, so l added it to the startup folder as l tend to forget to manually start it for some weird reason.

anyone else experienced this issue under windows 7? l would also find it useful to remove it from the take bar as ld much prefer it to run from the notication area to remove clutter.

Hi Timeless,
Could this have something to do with your firewall? Have you done any changes lately?

Program Guide Not Updating.
Sorry if this has been posted before, I've searched on various forums and have had mixed results from years of this similar problem arising on XP and Vista as well. My Media Center no longer updates the program guide, making media center essentially useless. I've tried re-setting it like others...
