    I'm using Windows 7 Professional on my Lenovo laptop and recently down loaded SKYPE and everything went to hell, audio feature disabled, screen went greenish and icons changed color and SKYPE became totally un-useable. I've tried all compatibility tests, upgraded drivers and assorted other test but nothing works; previous issues of SKYPE worked well but trying to use them now - not working.

    When I turn off SKYPE everything returns to normal.

    WHATS WRONG??????????????????????????????????????
