    On every login Skype loses settings

    While I found several threads slightly in relation to this issue, none of them seems exactly right. Using a clean installation of Windows XP Skype (several versions of Skype, together with the presently released 4.2.0.152 a small number of weeks ago, however I remember this as far back as 3.8.). Following several weeks, Skype not remember customizations, not simply the audio settings; however my login information, configuration of sight ("covenant," etc.). On one occasion this happens every time you boot the computer, Skype still starts automatically, however I do not register automatically, and after that I comprise to reconfigure the audio and display selection.

    Hello according to my experience your configuration file is corrupted. So you have to obtain a new one for that you have to exit Skype and then again start it and the run it. Once you run it after that type %appdata%. Then it will open a skype folder then you have to find Config.xml file. So delete this file and for another time restart skype and after that fill in your account data. Once you done with it then you will get new configuration file without any error message.

    Hi thanks for your replies I have tried all these options, but I am still not able to fix this problem. Basically fixed once and after that is not going to save my settings again. I deleted the Application Configuration folder, uninstall, remove all the registry settings for Skype and reinstalled. I still cannot remember my settings. I have to reboot each time you restart the application. How difficult is to write the configuration to a text file and save it? This is not an exact science!
