    Hi,

    Recently i tried to download skype, however if i click 'run' or 'save as' (and then run manually) the set up file it comes up with the error: skype has encountered a problem and needs to close.

    I also tried to download an upgrade to Netscape (from 8.1) and although the installation file will download onto my desktop, when i try to install the same error message comes up.

    I've got McAffee VirusScan Enterprise v8 and it hasn't detected any viruses.

    I'm not sure what might be wrong to make both give the same error message as originally just thought it was a problem with skype, and i'm not the most clued up on computers so please make any advice understandable!

    Would be grateful for any ideas about what the problem might be. Thanks in advance.

    Hi raz_22. I'm not up on your particular problem all I can suggest is that you post "bump" that will send you up the list and hopefully someone who is more aware will come to your aid.
    Good Luck.
