I CAN'T DELTE YAHOO MESSENGER

My son installed yahoo messenger. The program starts on my screen and his friends keep trying to talk to me. I tried to delete it, but it says I need permission. I am listed as an administrator. I read that I had to transfer ownership and I tried that also without results. My son tried to delete it and even withdrew his name and password from yahoo but it's still there greeeting me. I'm ok with him having messenger if it's only on his screen.

    I am able to see the "add/remove" section in control panel. I click on it and it says I need permission to remove it. I am the owner of the computer and the administrator. I don't know who's permission the program is asking for.

Webcam nd microphone is not working of my laptop


click start control panel view devices and printers you should see your webcam from there
if you are have trouble with your webcam
click start control panel administrative tools ,computer management ,device manager scroll down
or click start right click on computer select properties device manager scroll to image devices

image devices you could see a yellow question mark?
right click to reinstall drivers or update driver

Some webcams and programs require additional software, although that should be installed with the webcam if things are right.

But is does not harm to check if your Java, Flash and Quicktime software are installed and up to date.
But certainly check your DirectX software, since all video applications, including webcams, use DirectX for video processing.

Try downloading the latest DirectX version and install it (Windows XP: DirectX 9.0c - Windows Vista: DirectX 10).

I am having problems with bt yahoo messenger.i think the problem started when i installed one of the add ons so i could play bingo on facebook. now when i start laptop yahoo messenger doesnot show icon in...


The problem is that the yahoo messenger is not started at startup. You can do the following.

1. Open yahoo messenger from start-> all programs -> yahoo messenger.
2. In the sign In page (initial page) check both the boxes "remember my id & password" and "Sign in automatically"
3. Type in user id and password and login
4. From "messenger" menu item click "preferences". A dialog box will popup. Click "general" in the left hand side. In the right hand side there will be a check box "Automatically start yahoo messenger" under "when I start up my computer".
5. Click ok.

This will solve the problem.

How do you use the webcam on the toshiba harman/kardon?


Well, what do you want to do with it? You can set up an instant messenger with your email address, and chat with people, and there is an option to do a video call in the program. You can use programs like Windows Live messenger, yahoo messenger, Google Talk Messenger, Skype messenger (works with all email addresses) ...whatever goes with your email. Then you can talk and they can see you. If you have software programs, you can take still shots with it, but they will not be the greatest quality (since it's probably only a 2 or 3 megapixel camera, most webcams are)...if you are more specific, you will get a better answer.

  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if Installed Properly will come up and show a video picture.
  4. Then, on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and her to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
