I have the same problem, Skype works but the rest of my PC is blocked when online, alt-cntrl-delete brngs up a crippled Task Manager and the only solution at that point is to shut down. I am running Windows 7 on an HP laptop and have had no issues for years with SKYPE util this upgrade. Have been trying to repair it for about a week now and after all the time spent with Skype Customer Service (a useless group of people if ever there was one, they don't read your emails and just autoreply) we're all beginning to think my friends and I will be switiching to OOVOO.
i have the same exact problem, i just posted about it as well, a temp fix you guys can use is downgrade to an older version, i am using skype 6.0 and its solved the issue for now, still waiting/hoping for someone to figure out a fix for the newest release, or at least hoping that 6.4 wont have that issue
Here's my post!
No answers from skype yet.
here is a link to 6.0
hopefuly this will be fixed soon though
