So here's the strange problem I face... when i place a voice call over skype, I hear a rinback tone (generated by skype) immediately. After a while I hear the second ring back tone played simultaneously. The 2nd ring back is the authentic one that is actually played when the phone on the other end is ringing.
Anyone else face this?

My Skype started double ringing a week or so ago. I finally figured out my problem. It is ringing in the Skype application and also in the browser window where I have Outlook open, I guess because my Skype and Hotmail accounts are linked. I can only see the answer/decline pop-up for the Outlook call if I am on that browser page. If I don't have Outlook open, it doesn't ring twice. If I do, it does, and the call will not stop ringing when I answer the call in Skype. I have to either go to the Outlook browser tab and decline the second call, or I can close the browser if I'm not really doing anything right that minute. That makes the ringing stop. I do not have any ability to adjust the Skype settings in Outlook, or initiate calls/see my contacts, so I cannot chose to only have one or the other application open. I wonder if the Skype plug-in/extension addresses that? (It's not available where I am.) It looks like the only real fix availabe to me would be to de-link the two accounts? Does anyone have any other ideas?
