Go to start ----> log off ----> switch user -----> if there are more than one user then log all of them off then log in using one user name and try it. make sure your anti virus is up to date at all times. norton is good then do a full system scan. if it still didnt work, then you have some kind of spyware on your PC where you'll need to reformat the Operating system drive using original windows XP cd. back up all important data before formating.

My web cam do not work


Hi there!
It would be better if you'll clarify what is the brand and model of your webcam.
Anyways, you may check if ever the webcam has the accompanying drivers. You may need to install it first for the equipment to work. Also, check if you have plugged it in the right USB slot, it's possible that the port is already damaged and can no longer detect the device.
Hope that helps.

When im webcaming the i could see the other person but the other person cant see me, their screen is black & so is mine


Can you make sure you are using the same version of the communication software? If you can use the web cam in other programs, that should be the issue. Otherwise you may need to update the driver of your web cam.
