Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-6000 Webcam
Well, your not using it as far as you know, but when you installed your camera you installed some programs that came whit it, some of those programs is running in the background and occupied the camera, nothing wrong whit that, but you need to shut those programs down to realese the camera so you can use it whit msn.
Look at the bottom to the left on your pc/laptop, see if there is any program that refering to your camera, if so, rightclick on the program and exit it.
Click on the "start" button down at the left, select "Run", type "msconfig" in the window and hit enter.
You will now see a new window, one of the flicks say "Autostart" select that one. You will now see all the programs that runs in the background, tick off all that refering to your webcam, that will make those programs to not automaticly start up when you start your PC/Laptop, press OK and restart you PC/Laptop.
Now your webcam is free and can be used in any programs you want.
