You've been spam by such spyware on your system, like worms, trojan or virus. Last night I fix like what problem you have, even I reinstall the Acer Orbicam and nothing all in connected and still use by another application. This trouble is in order to remove such malicious script or viruses. Use Spyware Doctor to remove on it. Good luck!

Webcam error "Creation of the video preview failed"


Sounds like you may have picked up a damaged WebCam /Mic
I would not play around with items unless you know that they are in working condition, as you may end up shorting out a USB port or worse.

My orbicam is not woking well.


If you are having a orbicam issues it could be either the Driver or the software /program part of it. I would recommend you go to the Acer webiste and goto support and type your model number in and download the Orbicam software and driver and Reinstall it after you uninstall/remove it from your system and restart first. This should fix your problem you might just have a missing file on the program .Hope my answer gets you closer to a solution.

Checked if your orbicam is in device manager (under imaging device),
if it still there, you might have wrong orbicam application installed. try to download the orbicam application, there are 3 type of orbicam for Aspire 5050 (suyin, bison and logitech). try to installed one by one.
or if you can try to reload the whole windows, using alt+f10 during boot.
