My Skype was working fine since yesterday afternoon. Now, I'm not able to connect and Windows 7 tells me that the program will be closed. What can I do?

I got the same problem, Skype was working fine until it stops at sign-in, it made me open up 2nd Skype account with another $ 14.00 Deposit on Visa. Still no Skype Service.

In order to fix the issue, go to Start > Control Panel > System and Security > Windows Firewall > Allow a program through Windows Firewall and check the box next to Skype. If you can't find the application in the Allowed programs and features window, press the Allow another program button, navigate to the installation directory, select the executable file and press Add.

After that, from the Advanced Settings select Inbound Rules > New Rule. Check the Port box, click Next, select All local Ports and follow the self-explained steps. Also, make sure that your security program doesn't block the connection. If the error persists, navigate to the official web page and upgrade the application to the latest version.
