I have installed Skype. Have used it before successfully, but have forgotten the password used.  

When i click on the apparent link that suggests you can get help to solve the lost password problem,  I get no response from the link.  

Is there a way to overcome the lost password for Skype?

Try using a different browser to open that link that skype provides.

Sounds to me that your system might be compromised by some malicious applications. I would suggest you run a AV Scan on safe mode and verify that your AV does not have any quarantined items listed.

If no malicious software found, reset your internet browser settings and delete all cookies.

I do not use a browser with skype.  It has its own display window and it simply does not respond when I push the link for lost password.  If it link to a site, it never show up.  Never calls the browser I use (Foxfire) but the link (if the underlined words are a link) never causes anything observable on the computer.
