      If you get a “… has stopped working” error window, click the View problem details text and copy the error details to a code-block in this topic. This allows us to get a more detailed view at what goes wrong. You can also get these error details from the Application Log (Windows Logs -> Application) in the Event Viewer (Start -> Run -> eventvwr.msc -> OK) in which you search for a record with Application Error as value in the Source column.

      If there is a reference to a module in the error details, that (possibly 3rd party) module might cause the problem.

      Sounds like there really is a firewall blocking something. As you can read here, Skype can use various (HTTP) ports to connect to the Skype server so if it really can’t connect to the service it looks like some firewall is blocking the Skype.exe executable from the internet. Same counts for the other games/applications that need online access.

      First make sure you don’t have any other firewall software installed like Norton Internet Security, ZoneAlarm etc. Then configure your Windows Firewall by going to Start -> Run, typing wf.msc and clicking OK. Now go to Outbound Rules and on the right click New Rule. Select Program, click Next and select as program path C:Program Files (x86)SkypeSkype.exe or whereever the executable you want to give access to the Internet is located. In the next screen select Allow the connection and click Next. Select all profiles checkboxes and click Next again. Give it some name and click Finish.

      You can also try to see using Wireshark (a packet analyzer) if you see any traffic between your computer and the Skype server. If you don’t know how to use Wireshark, you can watch some tutorial video’s here.

      Good luck! 🙂
