    Skype is off air at the moment, there are world wide reports of being unable to connect.

    Frankie complained last night of receiving a trojan via skype following our conversation. My computer was and is clean, I think skype itself may well be at fault.

    Just tried. I'm still logged on by phone but only Skype Test Call is showing up as on-line and it won't connect. Can't log on via this PC at all.
