Skype's Mic Volume Changes when other Applications or Games Launch.

It's seem to be a problem recently when I launch games or any other app.

The mic volume changes drasticaly from low to very high and sensitive.

Irritating other in the call, I have to then manually lower the volume. 

The Auto Adjust Setting for my mic is unchecked. When I go to change the recording settings in Windows Sound options, if I lower the levels in that window, the skype volume lowers, if I increase it, it also increases on skype. None the less, the problem seems to be that the mic volume increases without my interaction. Is there a fix to this?

I have a similar problem with different circumstances. Playing guitar with a friend, he can hear me, but his mic cuts out when he plays, then I cannot hear him. When we talk, there's not problem. But when one of us plays a guitar (even at a low volume) the other's mic cuts out. Any ideas?

with Skype open, can you try to open the Volume Mixer option to see if the options below would appear?  There you can control the volume of Skype and the general sound levels of windows audio.
