Resolve Skype unable to login problem

I woke up in the morning finding myself unable to log myself onto Skype to access my Messenger contacts. After figuring out for some time and sometimes even accusing my anti-virus program, I conclude this is a problem with the Skype installed on my laptop, since I am having no problems with Skype on my Android.

To resolve the login problem, I attempted to remove my profile completely. This seems to have resolved everything.

Before performing the following steps, make sure Skype program has exited i.e. Skype shouldn't even be lurking in your system tray.
  1. Start Menu > Run

  2. Type %appdata%\skype

  3. Click OK button.

  4. Delete the folder bearing the name of your Skype login name. It may be in the form of <username> or live#<username>.

Your Skype should run okay now.

For Mac users, the path is User/Library/Application Support/Skype.
