I was reading online to see if Skype drastically slows down your computer when doing things such as playing games, etc. I know that this is based on the power of your computer, but people were saying Skype uses up 50%+ of their CPU usage.
When I open up the task manager and look at my processes, the SECOND I open it up, it says CPU usage is 66%, then after about half a second, it changes to 0%-2%. Which is the correct number?
My computer doesn't seem to slow down, but I want to do if it's affecting any of the games I'm playing.
