If you lose your skype password. Skype Tech support is worse than useless. There has been an ongoing problem that they won't acknowledge where the password recovery email either takes 8-24 hours to arrive (and it expires in 6 hours) Or it never comes at all. If you manage to get a live chat with a human they will use the exact same recovery method, You can plead, beg, cry and scream and they will refuse to send you an immediate email "For your Protection". Bizarrely, any other email from the Skype.com domain usually arrives instantly. Which suggests to me that yes, my email is in fact set up correctly and is not blocking emails from Skype.  I've witnessed this with multiple people and multiple Skype Accounts. We can't *all* be doing it wrong. :smash:


There are several utilities on the web, but I'm not sure what I can trust. The free ones that I've found stink of malware. I'm supposed to download a special tool to enable the download? WTF!? I don't think so!


I'm willing to pay for a utility provided it's Portable.

I already have 4 people waiting for a solution to this in addition to myself. I consider myself an experienced computer tech and I'm considered a miracle worker by people in my neighborhood, but this is a nut that I just can't crack.
