comment Are there solutions that can limit the CPU usage of a process?
@DanielRHicks I'm so glad StackExchange sites have killed the idiotic "zombie" idea. If there's a question about something already, that is where new answers go, even if the question itself is 10 years old now. Seriously.

comment How do I allow programs that generate “high” or “severe” alerts in MS Security Essentials?
Not an answer to the question, but I found that if you quarantine it and then restore straight away, the file becomes unblocked. Having said that, this seems to suggest MSE is no better in terms of UI than all the other products...

This doesn't work if MSE has already detected a "threat". It might work on new items, not sure yet.

comment Get louder sound from speakers with software
@Brad I was referring to those audio tracks which are too quiet throughout, rather than just have a high dynamic range. A h/w compressor would indeed be handy for laptop speakers...

This also occurs on Windows, exactly as described. It is clear that Skype has a bug, and this has been occurring over a large number of versions, including the latest. Also, the linked thread is gone.
