It doesn't have to be Skype.

It is likely the http.sys driver, which is used by IIS and many other MS Apps/tools that have web management interfaces.

Try this tip:

A common blocker on Windows 7 is the World Wide Publishing service.

Also, you can fix the control panel freezing issue by getting the latest control panel from the link in my signature.
