Windows 7: Skype Freezing on Startup After RAM Upgrade

Skype Freezing on Startup After RAM Upgrade

I've just added a 2GB stick of Hynix 800MHz, DDR2 RAM to my laptop. Works like a charm, and Windows Memory Diagnostics say nothing's wrong with it.

Laptop works 5x faster now, and all programs open and work nicely, except for Skype. The moment I open it, it stops responding and freezes on the loading screen forever until I crash it.

This makes no sense to me, what's the least destructive way to fix this? Could it be my new RAM causing this?

I would uninstall Skype and then install the latest version.

Thanks for the feedback. Skype often gets it's n*****s in a twist over the com port 80 and usually a re install sorts it out! No need to apologise for spamming. Not sure where you thought you were guilty of that
Thanks for the rep!
