Trying to give something back to the Community...
So I get an email from Skype saying the version of the software is available for Windows (Version: 184.108.40.206) which offers some cool new features so I download and install it as I've never had problems before.
After the install finishes I get a message saying that because of a new IE plug-in that's been installed I need to reboot before I can take advantage of it so I do.
Ever since then though whenever I load IE it freezes and locks up so I'm off to try and troubleshoot it.
If you're seeing a similar issue let me know.
One workaround I've found is to open Skype and from the "Help" menu select "Help" which opens an IE window that works.
If I find out anything I'll let you know.
Shame I didn't keep the install for the old version (lesson learnt :-( )
