When making calls the call connects and then immediately fails. At the other end the call rings but when answered immediately drops. Same thing happens with incoming calls. Thought it might be firewall or somesuch but (to me) the settings all seem OK. Any ideas where to look would be appreciated.
Running Vista, AVG and Windows Security Centre. (turned off the WSC firewall; no change.)

Kill UAC then reboot. See if that fixes it

Is it the latest version of skype (5.0.0.152)?

That looks like that was the problem. Now upgraded to 5.something and made 'partially' successful call.

Thanks
