Windows 7 Skype Bug

So you’ve got Windows 7 and Skype installed; Your browsing your sites and suddenly you get a “Internet Explorer has stopped responding” message… Odd It hasn’t crashed ? All my tabs are the same….

Good news, its just the Skype ActivX addins, for some reason crashing or terminating abnormally.

To fix simply disable them by Clicking tools > manage add-ons > Disable
