problems with skype 4

  brlanuel 08:53 02 Mar 2009

I installed skype 4 on my xp system and it is cousing restart of my computer right after connecting to the net.
No such problem with the previous version (3.8)

any idea ?

Are you using the new release or a beta of v4? I don't know why it is causing a reboot but would suggest you remove it and go back to the previous version.

The problem is coused by the new skype 4, not the beta.
I have already went back to the previous version.
How ever I would like to be able to use updated versions.

Any idea ???

Version 4 works OK on my XP. Might be worth trying again in case the installation was a corrupt one.

Why not have a look at the skype community forum. You may find the answer there. I too use the new version 4 and so far have had no problems whatsoever. In fact I find it much better that the older versions.
