Are you sure about the message?
And the story about BETA is grim. Why use beta's which can cause your machine to need the OS reloaded?
I have always been able to use Skype on my Sony VAIO laptop until recently. After signing in all I get is a message that Skype is currently unavailable. This has been going on for two days now. I uninstalled Skype and attempted to reinstall 5.5 with no luck. It wouldn't let me enter my email address a second time so I installed Beta 5.7. However, I am still getting the Skype is currently not available try again later. Can anyone help me with this? My laptop is runing Vista Home Premium. I will appreciate any assistance getting Skype up and running again.
