Skype application is not working properly

Hello experts,

I was using Skype for quite long time, when I try to open Skype all of a sudden I got his pop up message. It worked well in Xp operating system, but this happened in windows 7. Tried million times to uninstall and reinstall the Skype, but nothing magic happened. Also I updated my operating system and also updated my web cam and microphone too. Experts help me solve this issue.

Exception EAccessViolation in module networx.exe at 000000000002F492.

Access violation at address 000000000042F492 in module ‘networx.exe’.

Read of address 0000000000000000.

Also when you reinstall it, if it gives you the option install it in another directory.
This will make Windows see it as a new program, and not pick up any files or settings from the old install.

This might be of interest...

I don't have a networx.exe file on my computer, in Windows 8, for what that's worth.

I see other people having this issue with Skype, the main fix seems to be fully uninstall it and reinstall it.
As I said try and do it in a new location.

And make sure you are installing the latest version of Skype for Desktop.
