Windows is not a program its an operating system
i still have a 600mhz Pentium III that works perfectly running windows 95/98 (non se)
also enjoy nfs hot pursuit on my pII(passive cooled) with 64mb ram 16mb gfx card and a massive 6gb harddisk if it works it works
pitty today's game's wont run on that machine therefore i have an newer computer
for msn i use and older version (new is epixly bloated and slows even a decent computer down)
skype also an older version because the newer skype gets the more ram it starts using
utorrent etc u name if it works keep using it why would u upgrade ?
I got auto-upgraded to Skype 5.8 the other day and ever since Skype has been running at around 50% of CPU. My PC is whirring away and everythign else is going dead slow.
I tried reinstalling back to version 188.8.131.52 but that hasn't helped. I re-start and Skype comes back strong, 49-50% all of the time.
Can anyone please help?
I've used Skype for many years and never encountered this problem before.
I'm using Windows 7.
Unfortunately I'm still having this issue. I never was connected to Facebook in the first place but still have the issue of 49~51% CPU usage. It's really becoming an issue since I have other high CPU usage programs that are now barely able to get enough.
Make sure Skype is not running in Compatibility / ADMIN Mode.
you can try uninstalling Current Skype with Revo (remove all registry entries)
then, reinstall latest Skype 5.11 Beta with this link:
Well, I'm afraid this still hasn't done much. I tried multiple times, uninstalling and reinstalling both the beta and 5.10. Both give me the same issue.
you can try old 4.2......
and disable automatic updating of Skype
