I am running Skype for Business 2015 on my pc running Windows 8. When Skype is running, it keeps taking popping up every 20 seconds or so. I can be in the middle of a Word doc typing and suddenly typing in the Skype search bar. I've been working with my IT on this and they cannot find a solution. We have uninstalled and reinstalled Office twice, checked various settings, cleared caches, temp files, etc. As is, I can't use Skype. I've looked online for this problem - seems others have had similar issues, but nothing with a concrete solution that works.

Any help would be much appreciated!
