How do you stop Skype from messing with the Windows volume mixer?

For some reason even after I exit Skype, the volume mixer will continue to randomly make things extremely quiet.

Right click the speaker in task bar, go to playback devices, click the "Communications" tab at the top, set it to "Do Nothing".

IIRC you right click your volume control icon then go to playback devices. Under the communications tab, click "do nothing"

This is what's happening.

It's one of the first things I do when setting up a freshly installed Windows OS.

I don't use it. That helps with that particular problem quite a bit.
