I have asked in Skype community last week, I am still waiting on a reply.
My issue is...
When i turned on my laptop it loaded accept Skype it told me there was bad sectors within the program, so i proceeded to uninstall it and re-install it, then that's where things got worse.
After unstalling it, i tried to instal it i got a 1603 error so after doing some research i then started to get rid of everything to do with skype, i got stuck on this one issue, when i went on to this part "C:\Program Files (x86)\Skype\Phone" the skype.exe could not be deleted because of this message.
"The action can't be completed because the file is open in Base Filtering Engine.
Close this file and try again."
I have tried everything to get rid of it or at least stop the service, to no avail, i even tried to delete it through the command prompt and i got the same results. As a last resort i downloaded the Mocrosoft Fix It program i saw that skype was not listed so i went to others and it asked me for a product code which i cannot find, so i am stuck with this part.
Then i thought i would just install over it i just get the same message of the 1603 error.
So i need a solution to this, as i am out of ideas, I would like very much to use skype again but unitl further notice I am without it.
A little info that may help you.
OS Windows 7 Ultimate (64bit)
File Version 126.96.36.199 (Skype)
Product Version 16.13 (Skype)
Thanks in advance
