How to unblock a blocked outbound sender?

How do I unblock a "permanently blocked" outbound sender of information?  I goofed w my install of SKYPE  and shortly thereafter blocked Skype from going outbound from my computer.  Hence, SKYPE, no workie now....    I'm on Vista,  IE 9

Any wisdom would be much appreciated!!

Open SecurityCenter

Click Web and Email Protection

Click Firewall

Click Internet Connections for Programs

(Takes a while to load and a hint: click the work Program at the top of the list to rearrange them alphabetically)

Locate Skype

Using the Edit button if necessary to make sure it has Full Access.
