Why has my Skype been disconnected? I have tried to reinstall it so many times and I have 10 numbers which I use. Is there an email address I can employ? I'm fed up with installing.

The error you're facing is not related to email address. It seems that you got disconnected because of a computer problem or Skype itself. Try to disable Windows Firewall by opening a command prompt (Open Start Menu>Run>CMD) and type the following line: netsh firewall set opmode disable. Then, perform a new installation of the software by downloading the latest version from the website. The result of the command above should look like this:

Microsoft Windows XP [Version
5.1.2600] (C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>netsh firewall set opmode disable
Ok.    
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>

Also make sure you disable temporary any Internet security software you have and then try to reconnect.
