Click the Apple in the upper-left corner, then click System Preferences. Click User Accounts. Now, click the lock at the bottom if you need to authenticate and make changes. Highlight your name and click the Login Items tab on the right. Highlight Skype and click the minus (-) button. Now Skype won't start when your computer does. If that doesn't help, open your Applications folder and drag Skype to the trash to remove it from your system. If that doesn't help, something else is causing your computer to slow down.

Let me know. I'll monitor your thread.

Slow mac computer


Generally, there are a couple of reasons that may cause a Mac computer running slow, but generally two factors: hardware part & system part. For hardware part: I guess it's OK if your Mac is not that old. For system part: there might be a lot of junk files, caches, registry errors... out there which largely slow down any Mac machines. about 80% slow Mac caused by this reason, if so, try cleaning the system.

Skype runs slow on video


You absolutely need more RAM. I have 2.4GHz processor with 2GB RAM and Skype video runs pretty smooth.

Since your computer is 10 yrs. old, you may not even be able to install enough RAM to make it "good".

If I can be of more assistance, use the Comment button to reply.

Voyager 520 headset on a macbook, trying to use skype


have you gone into system preferences/sound.input/output settings?
try making a free test call, and you can play around with all your settings that way...also helps to keep the volume turned down on your mac, and just adjust it using your headset.
