    Windows 8 crashes during Skype call


    I just upgraded our computer to Windows 8, but it crashes during a Skype session. I installed the W8 desktop version of Skype, not the app version. I need the small window on top of the screen, and this is only possible with the desktop version, not with the Windows 8 app version!!

    I already reinstalled Skype, but the problem persists.

    I attached the SF file for analysis.

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions!!
