I have been having problems with my microphone on Skype. The microphone works perfectly any other time except with Skype. I have had several people look at my computer and the only way I can use Skype now is when my firewall is turned off (not a good idea) as this seems to be the problem. The last man said he had done everything that Skype suggested but for some reason my software protection will not allow me to use my microphone on Skype. As I am not a computer buff in any way I am at a loss as to what to do next.
Is there anyone out there who can help PLEASE. :'(
If you go control panel — windows firewall — click on that and then "allow a program thru’ firewall "(top left hand side ), a dialogue box comes up , make sure Skype has been ticked , if not tick the box . If Skype is not shown you can add it and then tick the box, then "apply" then ok it. Hope that helps
