I think the next thing I would try is disabling any antivirus and firewall software, before installing. That may be what's causing the problem.
Just a word of warning - I reckon you can be pretty confident that a Skype download is clean, but if you want to be absolutely certain, download the installer file to your computer (ie: Save, don't Install) and scan it before you disable your security software.
Then disable the security stuff and run the Skype installer.
