Re: Skype slows down computer!

So after uninstalling everything you still have this problem or it is gone? 

 

Without any information is like shooting in the dark, but sound like you have some malware on your PC o good clean up proper software and registry fixed should fix it.

 

As to skype, it is very bad for gaming, takes up lots of resources and bandwidth. Even for me and I have top spec PC. Use team  speak :wink:

No mate, I have checked everything, everything is fine now (my computer)

But I have reinstalled skype again and again and when it opens it is fine, then I log into skype and it freezes my whole computer till I can't do anything.

When I use skype and games it is fine, this just started two, three days ago before then everything was perfect I have cleared everything made sure I have no virus ectect, and it still doesn't work.
