4 thoughts on “Skype blocked by latest Microsoft Update

  1. It is *not* a Microsoft Update and it is *not* blocking the Skype either.

    Observe… it is only a Windows Firewall Alerter notification which is treating Skype as non-generic, win32-unassociated, port 80 trailer application trying to access the Internet AND thus Windows asking your consent as to allow or deny this application.

  2. Cool enough, but it did spring to life all of a sudden after Microsoft update was run. MS do have a reasonable history of *accidentally* blocking apps they percieve as being competitive.


  3. If skype is blocked that is just not fare so i found a way around it and no one can stop me from calling with skype when its “blocked” 🙂 I use a service from the following site

    VPN Connections

    Hope it helps others too.

    P.s. they also will provide a new connection if the isp block the ip you connect to to establish a vpn.

    Read all about it on the site.
