Are Microsoft trying to stop us using FREE Skype, in order to BUY the 'contract' version? It took me nearly an hour to get it to download, then when it did, it asked my to sync it with my MS email which I did, then it had the stupidity to tell me that 'it already exists' and would not let me in!!

It was working fine until Bill Gates bought it, now I can never get it to work. :mad:

Since posting this I deleted all ref to skype on my pc and instead of downloading from Skype I went to cnet and downloaded their copy. Works perfectly now. :)
