1) Try downloading a new browser and run it without add-ons or plug-ins set it to default and then try msn 2) I am more Yahoo than msn and one way to prevent this in Yahoo is to put the webcam under VFW control try visiting this page - must be with IE !! http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messenger/messenger9/webcam/mstacamtest.html This action makes a registry change - It increased the frames/ per/ second by 100% for me 3) Increase your virtual memory 4) You do not say if you are on dial-up, if you are I strongly recommend upgrading to broadband.

Pictures freezes during video call may be caused by insufficient connection bandwidth. Video data transmission from your end and the one you are calling can easily clog the connection and if you put also the audio at the same time from both parties, this will surely eat up your bandwidth. Worst if you share your connection with other users especially when you are using WiFi routers or downloading from the internet at the same time.
You may want to increase your connection speed to at least 384kbps.
If the image quality is poor while transmitting video over the Internet

experience, while dial-up connections may result in choppy and overall
poor quality because of the slower connection speed. Even broadband
connections such as DSL/cable modem may experience choppy video at
times because of Internet traffic or slow upload speeds. If the image
appears clearly in the camera software, most likely your Internet
connection may be responsible for the poor image quality in your video
