I had the same problem.... did an automatic update and right after that when i would go onto skype the other person's video would freeze after 20 to 30 seconds. I was running skype 4.2. I completely uninstalled skype and then downloaded version 5.0. problem solved.
Test your webcam here using different software to yours http://www.testmycam.com/ Click 'Allow' in the top window and see if your webcam is working in the left hand panel.
If it works you know you have a software problem
Open the 'Imaging' folder in Device Manager and see if an updated driver is available by right clicking on the text of your webcam and selecting 'Update Driver' use internet when prompted.
If that fails, uninstall the creative software from the Control Panel and go into C drive Start > Computer >> Local Disk (C) >> Program files - confirm the Creative folder is gone Restart computer Download the latest software from Creative http://support.creative.com/Products/Products.aspx?catid=218
