Fix skype lag?

So yeah ever since i updated skype my computer lags like no other.  Before i updated it i never and i mean NEVER lagged. I play alot of League of Legends with my friends and we use skype to talk.  Its kinda bad that we've been losing alot lately cause of this problem.  Before the update i could run around 6 programs at a time and never lag.  Now whenever i have skype open and i so much as open the internet browser it starts to lag the crap outta my computer.  Anyway to fix this?

you may try disable some system services. 


Click Start | Run.

Type msconfig and press ENTER.

Click Services | Check Hide all Microsoft services select >> Uncheck unnecessary services.

Restart your PC.

Now try running Skype.
