Sense I upgraded to Windows 7 I've been having problems with Skype. Not receiving phone calls and sometimes people can't hear me when I call them. Sometimes my number appears as someone else. I was using version 126.96.36.199.
Skype problem in Windows 7 Solution
Upgrade to Skype version 188.8.131.52 http://www.skype.com/intl/en/get-skype/on-your-computer/windows/ or skype - Business Version 10 http://www.skype.com/intl/en/business/download/. Once I upgraded the problems went away.
You should be automatically prompted to upgrade Skype when you log on when there's a newer version out.
If you're not automatically prompted to upgrade your skype when you log on, try doing it manually.
- Go to http://skype.com and click on 'Get Skype'.
- Click on Windows or WIndows (Business).
- Click on the 'Download Skype' button.
- Download the newest version.
The problem where your number appeared as other numbers when calling people shouldn't happen anymore once you setup the caller ID. If you aren't hearing a ring noise when people call you on Skype try this. If you can't switch your Skype to online mode, go here.
