Not every one knows exactly what spyware is and how to remove spyware completely from their computer. Different from virus, spyware may install backdoors on your PC; steal your private information, such as pass words, credit card information, your phone number, and then send them to the third party through internet. You may have no idea about all of these actions of spyware and to make you angry, this is all about your PC, about your privacy! So we gonna figure out some means to get it done.

(If I understand your first problem is: you may have some virus and/or spyware) Update and run your anti-virus program.
You need to install update and do all the tweaks on a recognised anti-spyware program.
 If you have an anti-spyware program installed make sure it is NOT listed on 'The Spyware Warrior List of ‘Rogue/Suspect Anti-Spyware Products & Web Sites’
Those are "anti-spyware programs" that install their OWN spyware, while 'supposedly' removing everything else.
Use instead "Ad-Aware 2007", "Spybot - Search & Destroy", "SpywareBlaster" are three good ones. Beware of imitations and name similarities. Install and update then run them weekly after doing the latest updates.
Lastly, to stay OFF of Weird and Strange websites!  ;>)
Install McAfee SiteAdvisor.

After you clean-up your computer.
Go to your "Device Manager" (Right click on ‘My Computer', select 'Properties', click the 'Hardware' tab, click the 'Device Manager' button. Click the "Sound video and game controllers"). If there is some kind of a "Warning" icon superimposed on the 'Vidieo Camera' icon there is your problem!
If no "Warning" icons then try...
One at a time...
Double click on each of the devices that have 'Vidieo' in the listings.
Click the "Properties" tab; look for any "Warning" icons
Uninstall the DRIVERS for THAT DEVICE only. See instructions below.
Click on the faulty device and hit the remove button, follow the instructions given by the program.
Shutdown, restart, the device will automatically reinstall by the "Found New Hardware" program.

I have a cam on my computer i dont no how to use it

Hello Fultont13,

Your computer comes with a built in camera softwares, like YouCam, YawCam, etc. What you have to do is to search out the progran that runs your computer's webcam software from the list of installed programs. A hint is that it mostly contains the word 'cam' in its name, and often has an eye-like or camera like icon. When you have detected it, click on it. When it opens/starts, your webcam is ready 2 work for taking pictures or recording video.

Hope that was helpful?
Have a lovely day, and thank you for using FixYa.

How do I video chat with my webcam?

Use a chat software like MSN Messenger, Yahoo or Skype. Any of those should work fine for video chatting. Acer also has VCM which is a video confrence manager. Not quite sure how that particular software works, but a quick google search would reveal the process i'm sure. Hope this helps

YOUCAM inbulit cannot be detected in HP G61

learn to use device manger
Control panel, + device manager,see any read/yell or unknown
marks there, yes, then those are bad drivers. DO TELL.

the first question is always, did HP support that camera on win7.
so lets all go to HP now and see that, fixya is not HP.s
here goes. but G61 is not the full model number on the service tag so how can any one help? windows 7 32bit or 64bit?
you posted to dv6000z why?
G61-100 (or dash 200,300,400,500 or 600) must I guess
ok ill toss my magic dice land on 600
and land at here

easy no? just type in the model fulling and bam HP has your page of support.
first make sure all usb ports work on the PC, using test mouse
or test keyboard , because that is how the CAM works.
next load the camera software there
I load all there, but BIOS.
power on the PC and hammer F11 to get the HP Recovery
if the PC came with VISTA, then you wont like that at all
ive no idea what PC you really have nor what was shipped day one, so... advice is this.
1: what is the full model number and p/n on the service tag.
2: did you buy it new, if yes, was it w7 then,? or not.
lacking those 2 key facts, makes accurate help, impossible
even a danger to your data.

the camera will need 2 driver working and 1 app.
usb drivers
camera drives
and the HP camara App.
all that is before you at REAL HP

The WEB cam (camera) is normally a USB device, it can send and capture video images as well as still images. You can talk and see people over the Internet with a WEB cam.
You need to install WEBcam software for that particular model WEBcam on your computer and configure it to run with Skype, or any other VOIP (voice over IP) software. The WEBcam software will allow you to create a video (movie) and take still photos, it will allow you to store these images on your computer.
