That sounds like you have an antivirus program or antispyware program running that thinks your webcam software is spyware. Try disabling or snoozing the antivirus/antispyware software for a few minutes while you install the webcam.

I need a web cam installer for cdr king ao series


Good Day Anne!

I could have pointed you directly to the AO web cam installer driver that you need if you have mention the model number.

Anyways, the visit CD-R King's download site for its products, go to
http://www.cdrking.com/?mod=downloads
Scroll down below until you reach the PC Cameras category. Select from one of the AO series that match your web cam.

I do recommend you disconnect first the web cam from your PC before installing the web cam driver. You will only connect it during the installation once it prompts you to connect it.




Enjoy it!
It would be nice if you could give some ratings and testimonial to my answer.
Thank you asking Fixya.

I can not install my web cam


You need to give us more info! What kind of PC? What kind of cam?
What operating system?
Try uninstalling the software that came with the cam. Turn off your computer and plug in the cam, then turn the PC back on and follow the instructions that windows gives you.
That may fix the problem. If it works DONT install the software that came with it!

How do I hook up my new laptop webcam to the system


If it is an external web cam , it should have a USB connector . If so , simply plug it into your laptop from your desktop..(after windows is fully loaded and your computer is in a "calm" state .) Your computer should recognize the web cam and will attempt to load drivers for it . If your web cam came with a installation disk , install it first . Select installation or setup from the CD menu and follow the directions to install the web cam .

Certificate error on web site.


This is basically an Internet Explorer 7 Website’s Security Certificate problem! You have to self-sign the certificate on the client computer or add the URL manually to the trusted security zone. When you are trying to access a secure web page, you receive the warning message:

"There is a problem with this website's security certificate. The security certificate presented by this website was not issued by a trusted certificate authority."

Or

"Security certificate problems may indicate an attempt to fool you or intercept data you send to the server."

To fix this issue, you can follow either of the methods:

You have a rootkit virus, the only answer is reformat the drive and start fresh, sorry.
After a fresh install is done immediately install service(can be downloaded free from microsoft.com) pack 3, because sp2 is vulnerable to a host of trouble.

Packard bell restore new Hdu


From parkard bell suppport website Quote

"Step 4 - Re-installing your software
Call the help desk and ask them to guide you through the
ExtHS process.
Please have your Recovery CDs to hand when you call
the Easy Repair line.

Once you have completed the ExtHS process you will
need to re-install Windows and the other software supplied
with your Packard Bell computer. To do this follow the
steps below:
1. Disconnect all peripheral devices (web cam, printer,
scanner, broadband modem etc.).
2. Insert the Packard Bell Master CD 1 / DVD in the top
CD / DVD drive and restart your computer.
3. The CD will load and display the following message:
Please refer to the section headed Packard Bell
Recovery Program in your user’s guide for instructions
on this utility. Press OK if you want to continue
or Cancel to return to DOS.
4. Press the letter O on your keyboard to continue.
5. You will see a menu with options. Please select option 1
“Standard System Restore”
by pressing the 1 key on
your keyboard.
6. A warning message about data loss will be displayed.
Press the letter O to continue.
7. The process will take around 40 minutes. Once this is
done you will need to restart your PC. Remove the CDs
and store them in a safe place.
8. If there was a Software Library DVD supplied with your
PC you can use this to install the extra software that was
supplied with your computer. Insert this into the drive
and follow the onscreen instructions.
9. Finally, you will need to install any additional devices
(web cam, printer, etc.) and software by following the
instructions supplied with them."
