Do you possibly have two dots in your username?

I found this on Skype's support site:

Raul Liive commented on SCW-2385 (Skype crashing when username has two dots in row) saying: Yes we have figured out the problem.

Issue appears to people who have more than one dot in row in username.

We are working on fixing it.

Currently workaround is to use old version.

I would recommend upgrading to the latest version from inside Skype, using the Help menu option. I discovered tonight that there is a 5.1.0.104 for Windows.

  1. Close Skype.
    1. Right-click the Skype icon in the system tray (at the bottom right of the screen)
    2. Choose Quit.
  2. Ensure that "Show hidden files and folders" is switched on.
    1. Click Start, type run and press Enter.
    2. Type control folders and click OK.
    3. Select the View tab and ensure relevant entry is enabled.
  3. Locate the shared.xml file.
    1. Click Start, type run and press Enter.
    2. Type %appdata%\skype and click OK.
    3. Delete the shared.xml file.
  4. Restart Skype. The shared.xml file will be recreated
