when running other applications (does not matter if doing something on facebook or running a local program), my computer slows down a lot and then i get a message that skype has crashed. this has been going for some time so i leaned to completly stop skype when i'm not using skype. but my computer still slows down and this time i get a message that skype add-ons has crashed.
should i just completly uninstall skype to get my computer's profomance back? maybe i can do that on one of the computers and if the problem goes away then uninstall skype on all my computers.
Solved! Go to Solution.
i don't know which Skype add-ons have been installed and i would have not installed any had i known it was Skype. i understand that the new versions of Skype instals prorgams and makes changes that i may not want it on my computer.
i guess i have to roll up my sleeves and find out what has been installed and how i can get them off.
by the way i run windows 7 home edition on SAMSUNG lap top and windows 7 ultimate on a DELL lap top. i get the same problem on both computers. it is okay on a desktop with Linux but i don't use the desktop that often (have been too lazy to learn Linux well enough). and i use Google Chrome as my web browser.
i did disable Skype from my browser yesterday. there was an Icon there that i could click to make a call. i think that's why i keep getting the message that Skye was not responding even when i had closed it.
this is not good. a software that i use once in a great while is intruding into my total system.
