Skype starts on my amd x64 win7hp 8gb machine using about 130mb of ram, which in itself is ridiculous. Memory consumption rises steadily, passes 1gb and then crashes the machine hard with BSOD. Process of elimination tells me either Skype or the webcam driver is to blame. Crash dumps identify problem in ntoskrnl, however the bsod issue is completely eradicated with skype removed.
Anyone seen a similar issue and managed to resolve it?
Twenty minutes later taskmgr reports 37mb and dropping, a lot more like it. I expect this is a fix, but I'll keep an eye on it for bsod for a day or two. Thanks.
Odd how the beta release can be more stable than the 'stable' version...
