skype reaching excessive memory use after couple hours


#1
ok, as the title suggests, ever since skype updated to 6.14, I've been seeing excessive ram use after only a couple hours.

so..I devised a simple test, I closed and then relaunched skype to free the ram and then timed it.. after 3 hours roughly.. heres the ram consumption by skype...

the only things that have business seeing that kind of ram use are games(starwars the old republic can reach a gig and a half's consumption before win8 starts shedding non essential items from the cached memory), flash games, streaming videos, 3d modelling programs, and a few other things I cant think of off the top of my head.

that said..thats grossly excessive use there.

its not a virus, its not malware or spyware, I've already scanned for that...twice, using extensive scan options.

I cleared my message cache, reset IE as I know skype uses some of those settings, uninstalled and reinstalled skype.. past nuking my current os install I've got nothing left to throw at this.

help?
