Where are you trying to download SKYPE from?
Ive always used Google.
I don't think skype cares if your windows is legal or not.

Good Luck

Just an outside chance but check to see if the installer service is running in services, click Start then Run type services.msc and scroll down the services list and make sure Windows Installer is running, if not double click the WI entry and start it.
