You probably need to reinstall the camera application software for your laptop. You can find the drivers that you need from the Toshiba website. Just select the model of laptop that you have and click on downloads to get a list of drivers and softwares that originally comes with your notebook. I'd give you the exact link if you provided the model of the laptop.

SOURCE: ceccmdll.dll

Have you just installed a new security app such as Kaspersky?

If so you could so allow CEC_main.exe in the firewall which should cure the problem.

Hello , 

You may need to go to the manufacturer to download the software & drivers ,

You may also may need to scan your system for infections to see if that software is infected and unable to load & work , their is several place to have your system scaned for free or scanned and repaired for a small fee / just make sure that the company is reputable as in 

Symantic , Mcaffe , Panda Security 

also try rolling back the driver for you may have gotten a bad update for the software or driver / this is done thru the device manager

It says can't execute CEC Main, reinstall program


This is what I know about this issue. I'm guessing you have a built in camera and anti virus program installed on your laptop. What you will have to do is to uninstall the driver for the camera, and disable your anti virus for a while. then you can reinstall your camera and it should work.
If you need further assistance with the procedure, let me know and I will help you with detailed instrucations. I will need to know what anti virus you have and which windows you have installed

Reinstall my camera assistant software


I believe the best way to re-install that is by using the Recovery CD that came with that NB. Just insert the CD, run it inside windows & it should ask you to install applications & driver. Install the camera software and/or drivers and you should be good.

Hope this helps.
