That's a good question. I've never heard of it causing a viruses, but I guess it can since it's internet related.

I don't think Skype causes viruses, but it certainly a bloated program compared to how it used to be once. That is a shame too. It used to be such a great opting for IMing.

I wouldn't know; I don't have one, but it's very popular so I would think it would be safe.

Skype is a safe program made by Microsoft... However people can get your IP pretty easily in skype and ddos you (won't be a big deal, unless you are well known figure or targeted by someone). I heard Skype fixed this and made it harder to get IP, but haven't heard anything great about the program. Just make sure you don't click in suspicious links from strangers

That is a first.  I have had Skype for some years and have never had trouble with it. You can talk to anybody who also have Skype.
