In my oppinion, ditch McAfee and simply use the Windows Firewall together with a free Virus Scanner such as AVG.
People will tell you that AVG is bad, however with a little bit of research you will find that it actually scores better than Norton -and- McAfee.
For added security you may also want to make sure that your routers firewall is turned on.
A simple spyware scan once a week or when ever convenient with something like SpyBot will do.

How do you use the webcam?


Hello,

If you have skype, or yahoo messenger, or msn messenger, when you installed, the webcam can be turned on automatically.

Or you can go to some website that can take snapshot from you cam or download program to turn on the cam.

Hello,

No, don't do that. It is free before, but now they charge.


1.
step 1: go to www.picanom.com
step 2: select the tab "SNAP!"
step 3: allow to access your cam, and take the shots
step 4: click on the shot want to save and download it.

2. use this program , Camsnap, click here

I have a dell laptop and i have a bulit in webcam, i go on msn and my cam wont show when i'm trying to have a video call with someone...i need my cam to work on msn, how do i show it on msn ?


Open the MSN messenger program and click Tools and Options and there should be an option somewhere on there that allows you to choose your webcam.

If that doesn't work, check Start--> and right click on My computer, then click Manage.

Under there click Device manager and verify there is nothing that has a Yellow exclamation point next to it. If so that means that the drivers are not installed and we will have to reinstall them to make the computer recognize the webcam

Dell webcam manager working with msn messenger?


as ive told others, make sure u actually turn off the software program that came with the computer before using with msn! u should be able to have it on while using it but for some reason some computers wont allow it! it "tells itself" that there are 2 programs trying to run the web cam when really only one is.
but because the program is on, it sees it as being used in 2 places at 2 different times!

try turning off and exiting the software (dell webcam manager) and then go onto msn and try using ur web cam!! make sure the dell manager is exited, then when u have a msn window open, turn the cam on and see if ur friends can see u then..

good luck..
if this doesnt work ill check back and see what i can do for you!

Hi, my name is jullie and i have an acer extensa5620 the webcam on it doesn't work in yahoo messenger for some reason, but it does work in msn. I though it was a matter of me not installing yahoo properly,...


you have to go into the "macromedia flash" settings and "allow" the webam to be used by yahoo messenger, whilst in yahoo messenger itself.
If that doesn't work have a look at the webcams actual software

hope this helps

When i am on msn and want to put on webcam a message appears in a conversation saying Messenger is not available right now. Please try again later. (0x8ac70202)


This might be a compatibility problem between your webcam drivers with the new Windows Live Messenger program. You may want to:

1. Update your webcam drivers and see if Windows Live Messenger can detect it when you run the Audio Video setup from its Tools menu.

2. Or you can downgrade back to the older version of Windows Live Messenger which is compatible for your camera. Doing this however also requires that you uninstall all the Windows Live Beta products from your computer.

Note: You will not see a separate Windows Live Messenger on your Add/Remove programs, instead you will either see there Windows Live Beta products or Windows Live Essentials.

You can download the older versions of Windows Live Messenger from:

Windows Live Messenger 8.1:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=d78f2ff1-79ea-4066-8ba0-ddbed94864fc&displaylang=en

Windows Live Messenger 8.5:
