    Hi. I've been trying to install Skype on my mom's computer running Vista.
    When Skype starts to install, it comes up with an error saying not enough
    disk space. It's a core 2 duo Dell, with 3GB RAM and over 500GB of free
    disk space. Skyp tech support was not help. They said to send them a log
    file from Skype, but since it wont even install, there is not log. Does
    anyone have any ideas on what I might try next?

    You can try emptying the temp folders on the hard drive.

    C:\Temp
    C:\Windows\Temp
    C:\Users\<current user>\AppData\Local\Temp

    Skip over any files that won't delete because they are currently in use.
    After you're done, empty the Recycle Bin.

    Thanks. That didn't work but I did get it installed. I found the skype.msi
    file and ran that instead of their stupid installer that you download.
