    my computer is a toshiba satelite A215. I have windows vista home premium. after reinstaling the driver the cam works but only when i send a cam invite on yahoo. i know i have used the tools youre refering to before but the tool bar it use to be associated with is no longer present. if im not mistaken i could just put my cursor in the right hand side of the screen and it would slide out. it no longer does that and im having a hard time figuring out where it is. the cam works i just cant manually open it to view and take pictures with. hope the info helps.

    There are preferences or tools for your built in camera. somewhere there will be a check box to put the program in the tool bar. What model computer are you using?

Hover your mouse on the lower right corner of the screen just beside the clock. In those icons, look for the icon, Camera Assistant Software. Right click on in and it should give you a smalloption box. Put a check on the option, display as a side bar or show toolbar. That should fix it.
Hope this helps.
