When im using skype and have any program thats playing noise (youtube, itunes etc.) the sounds from those programs play over skype. This has happened on the same computer with both Mac and Windows (boot camp on macbook pro). I've looked in windows and where it shows my mic even with it muted it its picking up sound, which I would assume is from something running (again youtube, itunes, etc.). I'm using Turtle Beach X12's as my headset and using the mic on that and not the built in one.

That is not a solution at all. That just gets rid of your sound while on a skype call. Not helpful...

Control Panel>Hardware and Sound>Realtek HD Audio Manager (ofc if you have this driver), go at microphone and check Acoustic Echo Cancellation. This worked for me.

Acoustic Echo Cancellation was all the problem for me, communications not work.
