    skype has developed an interesting tic....


    so...I booted up as normal today, everything loaded...then skype shut itself down. so, I loaded it manually, it shut itself down a moment later, then restarted properly.

    I searched the windows event viewer..this is the result I got.

    I just saw the post.
    A couple of questions:
    Do you have both the UWP Skype Preview and the regular Skype For Desktop installed?
    If yes, are you trying to run Skype For Desktop, while the Skype Preview live tile is still on?

    Explanation:
    This was causing conflicts on my PC, making Skype For Desktop close, when an IM would come, because the Preview took precedence for the notifications.
    I had to finally decide to close the eye-candy Preview app, by turning off the live tile, and unpinning it from Start, as it just doesn't have all the stuff the desktop version has yet.

    Ok. That is what was causing problems with my skype, after the anniversary update, so I thought I would pipe in.:)

    I appreciate it...that said, it doesnt seem to happen often, but when it does, it gets my attention fast.

    I can understand, these days, Skype is a human right.

    certainly seems to act like one...right down to the mood swings. no thats not a shot at any women who may read this..cause even we men get mood swings from time to time.

    well that log shows normal behavior, as the restart manager tries to blog critical/unsecured restarts in the system. however, as a long term skype user i never use that skype preview as it wont work background with some certain applications.

    i heavily suggest you to download the "skype desktop application" differently from their pages :)
