Skype v Kaspersky

  tristar 14:48 09 May 2009

Had an email from my niece. She is trying to install Skype, but cannot get it to install.
I think she has XP home, and has Kaspersky installed as her anti virus program.
I feel Kaspersky may be the problem, but I'm not familiar with it.
Can anyone suggest what she might try? She's OK if it's fairly simple stuff.

I have both Skype and Kaspersky with no problem.
I doubt that is the cause, but she can always stop KIS protection while she installs it.

Thanks, rawprawn; can you tell us how to stop KIS protection?
As I say, I'm not familiar with Kaspersky.
It's good to know that Kaspersky and Skype can be compatible.

Right click on the kaspersky icon in the system tray and click on pause protection choose start manualy

Thanks, mfletch, I'll pass that on and see if it helps!
