Webcam is not working

Hi, i have an acer aspire one, and i'm trying to use the webcam on messenger on hotmail but it's not connecting, it keeps saying: We couldn't start your camera device. Please check that your camera is not currently in use by another program, and then try again.

I have not changed any settings, when i go into my computer and click on the crystal eye webcam icon, it comes on and i can see myself, so i'm just wondering what else to try.

Thank you for taking the time to help

Crystal eye webcam wont work on my acer aspire 6930


The cause of this problem is a combination of the new Windows Live Messenger 9 beta and McAfee antivirus trial that is installed on your Aspire.

Several solutions are availabe:

1. Simply to update your McAfee Antivirus. You can do this by selecting the update function in McAfee's interface. This should fix the problem instantly.

2. If step 1 does not work, you can, if you dont care much for the new Messenger look, uninstall version 9 and just install 8.5 again. This has no known problems at all.

3. see McAfee support site: http://service.mcafee.com/faqdocument.aspx?id=TS100601

Hope this solves your problem!
