Skype 5.5 for Windows Update

The Skype 5.5 for Windows update comes with a deeper Facebook integration. Without having to leave Skype, you can check out when your Facebook friends are online and instant message with them from the new Facebook Contacts Tab (located in between the Skype and Recent Contacts tabs). You can also view and update your Facebook status and even view comments or ‘like’ posts from your Facebook Wall, directly from Skype Home.

We have also made a number of updates to make your Skype calls on Windows even better. We’ve improved the controls for video and group video calls for Windows, enhanced video call reliability and made several design changes to improve your overall Skype experience.

    Since Skype has version 5.5
    Every time I close the computer, Skype program go to “Close Program”.
    I use xp system.

    Just back to version 5.3.0.120
    There’s no problem as I made that version 5.5
