We’re seeing another emerging issue around Internet Explorer that we wanted to make you aware of…
If you are seeing slow performance within Internet Explorer 8 (opening new tabs, for example), after just recently installing the latest version of the Skype application (v4.1), this could be the cause. We believe the reason behind this performance issue is an IE add-on that gets installed by the latest revision of the Skype software.
To resolve this issue quickly, please open Managed Add-Ons and disable the installed Skype IE add-on:
Please note: So far, we are only seeing this issue with this specific version of Skype in conjunction with Internet Explorer 8.
