okay one day skype just began popping yp over whatever I was doing. just I do not know what happened, can someone help me work this out. like I do not even know I fucked up my computer downloading something. then it went down hill fast.

It's Skype, stuff always goes wrong. Like Alyx said, try reinstalling it, and if that doesn't work, I don't know what you should do.
If we treat people as they are, we make them worse. If we treat them as they ought to be, we help them become what they are capable of becoming.

We're not retreating, we're advancing in a different direction!

If you have any set backups you could restore to, before the problem occurred of course, then most definitely do so. It's worth losing some data you've saved since if it's a solution to the problem. If your skype is persistent in doing this, open your Task Manager by pressing (ctrl+alt+del) --> go to the "Processes" tab --> look for Skype or some sort of Voice service process (perhaps vivox or something) --> right click the process and press "end process tree". DO NOT end the process tree of any of your processes under the "SYSTEM" catgory.. and it's also preferred that you don't delete your explorer.exe application. (no.. explorer.exe is not internet explorer. It is in fact the display of your HUD and if deleted, you will only be able to see your background picture and will have to reboot.) You may have to update your drivers if those methods don't do the trick.

If you experience any further problems, PM me or start a new thread so that others can get to helping you.

Actually, a thread like this should be bumped.  A new one on the same subject would be merged with this one.
