    So I logged on today and my computer automatically signs on Skype. I see that I have new messages from 2 contacts. I look on one, everything is alright.

    When I click to see what the second contact says, it gives me this error:

    Exception EOutOfResources in module Skype.exe at 00137617.
    Out of system resources.

    It then proceeds to close itself. I can re-open Skype and send and receive messages fine from everybody except that person.

    Any help plis

    Welcome to TSG,

    It's a bug disguising itself as a Skype executable file. It may effect your Skype account only and may go beyond. I'm moving this to the malware forum for a specialist to have a look at. Please be patient since they're busy bees:)

    Meanwhile try uninstalling skype completely and then re-installing it. Also a system restore to an earlier date. Either or both may fix the skype issue but it's best to also follow instructions of a malware expert to see whether anything else on your PC is affected.
