Unable to instal SKYPE on a new Netbook

MSIU 130 running win 7 starter

My daughter is trying to instal SKYPE on her new netbook but it's hanging at 32%

Does anyone have any experience or ideas about this?  Is this a problem for anyone else with win 7 starter edition and finally.... how can we solve it?

This article is suggesting to delete the installer, download another install and see if it will go.

We stepped back a version and it installed fine! Thanks for you input anyway.

I have Skype (just Skype, not the extensions) on my Windows 7 Pro machine and it installed without difficulty. So two things:
1. Look at User Account Control and temporarily disable it. Install Skype using an administrator id and see if it works. If so, go back and re-eanble UAC.
2. It may be that Windows 7 starter does not support Skype, but I don't know that for sure one way or the other. As noted, I have it running on  Windows 7 Pro.
