With one of the recent updates to Skype v5.1.0.112 for Windows 7, the application now randomly forces itself to the front and distracts me from my task at hand.

It appears to be for advertising purposes, it raises a dialog popup in center that says:

Thank you for using Skype!

Is there a way to suppress this window and not have it raised with forced focus and distract my work flow?

Skype is now on version at the moment.

I have not witnessed this behaviour and all I can suggest is updating to the latest version.

I had same issue. After installing Skype 5.7 Beta for Windows, this behavior went away.
