Solution for problems signing into Skype

Like myself, a number of you may have had problems signing in to Skype, but there is a solution coming up (and a workaround that you can try right away).
You can follow the steps below to fix the problem manually:

  1. Click Start, type run and press Enter. (On Windows XP: Click Start and then Run.)
  2. Type the following and click OK.
  3. Locate and delete the file shared.xml.
  4. If you cannot find this file:
      Click Start, type run and press Enter. (On Windows XP: Click Start and then Run.)
    1. Type the following and click OK.
      control folders
    2. In the View tab, ensure that Show hidden files and folders is enabled.
    3. Repeat steps 1-3.
  5. Restart Skype.
These steps are also present at the Skype site (which is also sometimes down, so I repeated them here).
