Hi, can someone help my friend, please. When she connects her cam to her laptop her computer freezes immediately and she has to do a beboot. This happens more frequently than not. She has tried an uninstall/reinstall without any success. I don't know what PC she is using but I do know she is using 'Vista' Any suggestion would be appreciated.

In order to use the video call feature both parties have to be in Yahoo Messenger 10. If you both have Yahoo you can use the webcam If you are cross chatting - eg Messenger X MSN, only basic IM will be available
Try to obtain newest and latest version of skype first. Problem may be with your web cam as it may not be properly connected with your pc or it has no proper driver install, please try reinstalling driver and check.
Further, before you install driver please check the settings from skype menu to see if they are set properly.
The problem could be the speed of the internet and also could be the computers memory. Try to reduce the size of the web cam window and also the speed and drop down the quality in the messenger. Try to use only messenger when using web cam not other programs. If this doesn't work try to reinstalling the yahoo messenger.
