    My webcam worked on the old messenger. Today I downloaded the new one and it refuses to work. It'll let me do a video call but not just webcam.

    it would seem your webcam starts a default program. do you know what webcam program came with your computer?

    it's also possible that you need to configure your cam settings... have you done this yet?

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!
