Skype will not start. Error: Exception EAccess Violation...

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.

Skype 5.0 Exception Error

Dear mropion: I had the same problem. I fixed it by downloading the latest drivers for my external webcam. -- hope that helps.
