Hello, everyone, I have a problem and hoping you can help me. I have a latest version of Skype 8.58 but when I clicked on the icon all I have is a spinning circle. So I can not even sign in. Does anybody else have this problem?? What can go wrong; why am I having this trouble?

Earlier I was able to open up. Today I have this issue. Also I noticed that my Skype is continuously "kicked out" of my computer. I am prompted to install every time I am trying to use. This is weird!!

Is there a solution to this? I have friends and relatives I want to communicate with, but it seems like I am constantly offline, and no one can contact me on Skype. :(
I tried to install an earlier version 7.39 but was forced to update as not supportable. So, I reinstalled Skype 8.58, but it's still only a spinning circle... I can't sign in. ](*,)
Thanks a bunch for your help in advance.
P.S. I installed Skype for Firefox, and Skype for Edge. Neither one works. :( My Firefox (default browser) is up to date.

I thought I would let your users know what I did to make Skype working: 1) I uninstalled Skype using Revo Uninstaller (note: not via Control Panel); 2) activated Windows 10 updates, 3) rebooted my computer.
Skype is working now.
Many thanks to all the folks who help me with my problems.

Moving to MozillaZine Tech as this is not a Firefox or Mozilla issue.
