Skype using 50% of my CPU

Has there been a recent update to skype or something because skype now uses 50%+ of my cpu (dual core).

I've tried re-installing it with no success.

has this been happening to anyone else?

so after a while it decided to stop it. No idea what cause it to behave but i can do stuff now.

My first impression would be go look for malware. Boot scan


Yeah that is really interesting, for whenever I start up Skype on my computer and sign in it will take up about 30 - 40 percent of my CPU but once it's done with that I those under 1 percent and this is on a laptop that runs a dual core i5 CPU.

and that's how it is usually for me too. But this time it was doing it for a good 20mins
