Windows 7: Skype, spotify, shockwave player not responding

Skype, spotify, shockwave player not responding

I recently just activated my version of Windows 7. Before I did this, everything worked fine.

Now that it is activated Skype, Spotify and even Shockwave player do not respond.

In Skype I can start to call someone but then it freezes and keeps on ringing. I've contacted Skype and they don't seem to be able to help.

I have tried uninstalling then reinstalling all of these applications. But the same thing happens; the screen freezes and I have to use task manager in order to stop the applications.

I've checked my device drivers for updates but all of them seem to be running the latest versions.

Any help would be really appreciated.

Hi Thomas, Welcome to SF,

Try to reboot the system in Selective Startup make sure your Network card has the lastest frivers installed.
