    1st: Go to Control Panel, Programs, Programs and Features, Turn Windows featues on or off, check in the list .NET Framework 3.5.1, confirm.
    2nd: Install Skype, close it and run it again in Windows 7 compatibility mode.

    thnsk frnd for reply....
    now skype is running well and fine.
    Solution
    run skype in windows 7 comaptibility mode and

    Close Skype.
    Right-click the Skype icon in the system tray (at the bottom right of the screen)
    Choose Quit.
    Ensure that “Show hidden files and folders” is switched on.
    Click Start, type run and press Enter.
    Type control folders and click OK.
    Select the View tab and ensure relevant entry is enabled.
    Locate the shared.xml file.
    Click Start, type run and press Enter.
    Type %appdata%\skype and click OK.
    Delete the shared.xml file.
    Restart Skype. The shared.xml file will be recreated.
