    I had to install skype. EMET breaks it apparently but I've got it sandboxed at "partially limited" with Comodo.

    I've heard it has some security issues, what can I do to mitigate?

    yes, you got to fiddle with the settings for Skype.

    Skype also was problematic with Geswall for similar reasons...
