Microphone echoes on skype

Hello everyone,
I have a problem with my microphone it seems when I am chatting to someone on skype my microphone echoes (It is not from the other persons speakers) and then when I quit skype and re-load it and I chat to someone it is fine? For some reason the microphone only works when I quit and re-open skype and start chatting but never works when I first chat to someone I must always quit first for some unknown reason.

If anyboy has th same problem or has a fix please post a comment to see if you are able to assist me

Unfortunately, quitting and reopenning an application to "fix" problems is common practice in Windows.

It probably has to do with your background noise cancellation. Try reinstalling skype/updating drivers/rebooting your computer. If nothing works, try to clean install Windows again.

Or simply live with the annoyance.
