If you're like me, and you have "thinned" out your Windows, or used any of those programs to "speed up" your computer, make sure "terminal" is enabled in your services. For some reason, this wont allow video effects to work. Very common problem. Good luck!

Thanks Nitrotrike for your suggestion. The Logitech Effects work after the...

If you are using Windows XP, and have tried to use the avatars or effects on a Logitech 4000 (and most other Logitech cameras) and the green arrow is 'grayed out', this is what is wrong:

Some of those 'speed up your computer' programs tend to disable un-needed services which run in the background of Windows.

Unfortunately, Logitech software needs one of these services to run in order for the avatars and effects to work correctly. Even Logitech themselves don't know why it needs this service running, but it does!

Keep in mind, this is a tip for Windows XP!

To make sure the needed service is running:

1. Click 'START', and go into 'CONTROL PANEL'


2. Once in control panel, click on 'Administrative Tools':


3. In Administrative tools, click on 'Services':


4. Scroll down to the 'Terminal Services'. (the screenshot shows Indexing Service):


5. If you see that 'Terminal Services' is disabled, that's your problem!

6. Highlight 'Terminal Services' and right click on it. Choose 'Properties'.

7. Change the 'Startup Type' to 'Automatic'.


8. Click 'Apply', then 'OK'.

9. Close out of the services menus.

Restart computer, and enjoy your avatars!

I may have stumbled on a solution. In the past every time I installed the software from the CD it turned off the Windows Firewall.

The Webcam worked for a few hours then began showing the error.
This time, I turned off the Windows Firewall, the anti-virus software, and Windows automatic update. After installation, I turned all of them back on.

The Webcam has been working flawlessly for the past two days.
I think there is more then one culprit that causes the error.

First, the Windows Firewall second is when one adjusts the Taskbar using msconfig.

I strongly suggest that you do not turn off any of the installed Logitech startup icons.

I had just received a Logitech Orbit AF Webcam for graduating a 4-year University with nearly perfect grades & a 3.98 G.P.A. I had tried to use an avatar instead of my picture and a popup window said
"Error Code = 0x80040606."

WHAT IS THE PROBLEM???? This is NOT a cheap camera! Why am I having these problems and HOW DO I FIX THIS??????

Code error 0x80040606

Can you try the following to see if it works? 1st, Make sure QuickCam Version is installed. 2nd, Make a copy of the "C:\Program Files\Common Files\LogiShrd" to "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Logitech". After you make a copy of this folder, under C:\Program Files\Common Files you should see both a "LogiShrd" and a "Logitech" folder. Both folders should have the same content under them (ie. "LVMVFM" directory, "KAudP" directory, etc...) 3rd, Uninstall Logitech QuickCam Version, and the QuickCam Drivers in Add/Remove programs. 4th, Reboot. 5th, Reinstall See if this works... Also, an alternative: instead of "uninstalling" Logitech QuickCam version in Step 3 above, you can try "Repairing" it from Add/Remove, and do not uninstall the drivers. Background: Working with a forum poster, we found a problem with a path-resolution function that maybe triggered by a Windows Update. Basically, it seems a Windows Update is added some extra folder attributes that causes the path resolution function to fail. When the path resolution failed, the code was set to failsafe to a "Logitech" directory instead of "LogiShrd" directory. This would also explain why these problems don't happen 100% of the time (because it seems the path resolution function doesn't fail 100% of the time) and the errors started appearing in 10.5 and above, when the Logitech folder was renamed to LogiShrd. Hope this helps!

Try re installing the drivers as that is what will enable the video effects or better still try a similair thing within windows movie maker 2 and see if all goes to plan.
