MY WEBCAM ALWAYS HANGS ON ME

I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO UNINSTALL MY WINDOWS LIFEWEBCAM PROGRAM TO ENABLE ME REINSTALL. I CANT SIMPLY FIND THIS PROGRAM UNDER THE "ADD OR REMOVE" PROGRAM WHICH MAKES IT VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO UNINSTALL. THIS IS REALLY FRUSTRATING. IS THERE ANY OTHER WAY YOU CAN SUGGEST TO ME PLEASE?

Try finding the file folder for the software, maybe under the c:\programs folder, and run a program called unwise.exe (uninstaller).

Also, try going into the Device Manager and deleting the webcam device.

My webcam isn't working...it always worked on my laptop. and then i used it on a desktop and plugged it back into my laptop and it's not recognizing it.


Uninstall the program again (installer). Try to reinstall the program with the webcam on it to be detected. When you use the cam on the Desktop, try to properly remove the device by clicking the task bar and exit. Wait for pop up instruction to remove the cam.
Try this... thanks

Cannot get webcam to work with Yahoo


Sometimes those cameras simply are not compatible and you are better off getting a separate USB webcam. Before getting another one, try to uninstall your camera and then reinstall the software from scratch.

Receive error code when trying to take snap shot with VeoAdvanced


I hope this sollution helps:

""Click on Start->Control Panel->Add or Remove Programs and uninstall the Veo Stingray software driver. Also, uninstall the Veo Digital Studio.
Unplug the Veo Stingray from the computer.
IMPORTANT! If you are connected to the Internet (such as through a dial-up modem or cable modem/DSL) log off from your Internet Service Provider and disconnect any telephone cords or Ethernet/Network cables from your computer. This will prevent Microsoft Windows Update from attempting to update your Veo Stingray software driver through Microsoft Windows Update.
Place your Veo Stingray CD ROM into your computer.
Click on Start->My Computer. Look for your Veo Stingray CD ROM drive.
Right-click on the Veo Stingray CD ROM icon and then select Open.
Go to the E:DRIVERSAPPBIN folder and double-click on a file named cleanup. (You can also download the cleanup file from: ftp://home.fiasj.net/xirlink/ibm/ibmcleanup.exe)
In the cleanup program, press the "Scan and Delete" button in order for it to begin.
After the cleanup program has finished, click the "Exit" button and restart the computer.
Reinstall the Veo Stingray from the CD ROM, restart the computer, and plug in the camera after the computer has restarted.
After the Veo Stingray has finished installing, try the Veo Digital Studio program again and click the "Take a Snapshot" button.
If it works, you can reconnect your telephone cord or Ethernet/Network cable to your computer. Microsoft Windows Update will not attempt to update the Veo Stingray driver again."

It might also be a java problem, go to Add/Remove Programs, uninstall all versions of Java, and try reinstalling."

I am unable to uninstall the software for Genius


Go to windows explorer and find the uninstall there. In the program folder for it, it will be one of the applications. If all else fails, just reinstall it. The files that are there now will just be overwritten.
