Title: Skype on Win 10 chews at cpu
Post by: danielson on August 29, 2016, 05:48:39 PM
Every once in a while, Skype (which i never use) on Win 10 spikes up the cpu.

"End Process" doesn't seem to work to stop it, so i'm wondering how or if Process Lasso can do something about it?

Which Skype is this, built in one with win10 or stand-alone one?

You can choose to uninstall it if you never use it. :)
If you somehow don't want to uninstall it, then just tick the "Terminate always", or just change the Priority class - Always - Idle. ;D
