Has anyone else experienced a script error when starting Skype?


Essential Member
Hi everyone,

Every time I start Skype on the Consumer Preview, it is very slow/un-responsive for a minute or two, before displaying this message:
I've figured out it has something to do with the Skype "home" page, but that's all I really know. When you stop running the script, the performance is fine again.

This happens every time I boot up. Does anyone have any ideas?

I don't suppose a compatibility mode would help?

No, unfortunately it hasn't.

I'm going to keep working on it and I'll post a solution if I happen to find one.

It's also worth mentioning massive amounts of memory (700+ MB) are leaked during this time.. As soon as the script is terminated it releases it all.
