I'm icooliam and i've had skype for about 5 months now, I started my account up to talk to my friend on my laptop. About 2-3 months ago I built a new computer from parts that I bought. I made my new computer really to play minecraft as my laptop was a bit slow. My other friend plays minecraft too and had skype so I downloaded skype onto my new computer and added my other friend. Skype never makes a difference to my game minecraft but seems to completly freeze my PC when I am talking on my new PC.
I never had this problem on my laptop and decided to try it on my new PC talking to the same friend but without minecraft running. It still froze. If I leave my PC after it's frozen it doesn't un-freeze, also it might not freeze for 1.2 hours sometimes but sometimes it will only last a few minuets. After I restart my PC it still freezes when I start talking again on skype.
I am running windows xp professional and my new PC and de-bug mode is not on. Please help me here as I'm not sure what to do,
