Look at other things you have installed and/or running, too. There might be something that is competing for a particular resource. You might try turning off your AV, too, and see if that has any affect. Do you have anything running that is supposed to protect you from the internet by filtering incoming packets? More than one firewall (one in addition to the built-in Windows firewall)?
Have tried to disable AV before, no change.

I use zonealarm firewall, skype is set as a trusted program so all connections are allowed.

As for my pagefile:
It used to be set to the recommended size but I changed it to system managed to save a little space.

Just got upgraded to BT Infinity


Edit:
Also skype v3.5 seems to fix the lag issue.

I had problems changing to 3.5, after many days and emails to skype to have my contacts restored I was able to export contacts and import them when i reinstalled 3.5.

Seems to be running OK but still 4.2 was much more friendlier to use and I'd rather solve the issue than circumvent it, if anyone can help please do.
