is of any use. There have been others in this situation, so maybe one of them had the same issue as you have and managed to solve it.
I cannot start Skype anymore (whichever the version) but receive an error instead:
"Exception EAccessViolation in module Skype.exe at 0002E016.
Access violation at address 0042E016 in module 'Skype.exe'. Read of address 00000000."
I run Windows Vista Home Edition SP2 and have disabled my Avast Firewall before loading Skype program.
Do you know how to fix that problem? Thanking you in advance.
