I cant use my camera because its being used but another app... but i have no idea how to locate or close the app


I would suspect it in a startup program, say CyberLink. It's set to start at Windows Startup. Open the webcam software for your laptop and disable Start at Windows, OR download CCLEANER freeware at : http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/ .This is a good program to learn to use. You can clean the junk from your machine and in the TOOLS section, STARTUP, look for your webcam startup program, disable it. Disable ALL unnessary startup programs to speed boot and shut downs.

Uninstall the hotkey software from Control Panel (Add/Remove Programs in XP, Programs and Features in Vista, 7)

Alternatively install Startup Control Panel and uncheck the program from startup.The program works great in XP, for Vista and 7 there is more playing around:
  • Download the zip file
  • Click Extract All files
  • Right click on the program
  • Choose Run as Administrator
  • Install the program
  • Open Control Panel and choose Classic View
  • Run Startup
  • Uncheck something in HKLM and it will duplicate
  • Close Startup
  • Wait for Windows to pop up a box
  • Click Reinstall using recommended settings
  • Allow the program to run
  • Now you can remove the programs from startup.
  • Restart your computer

How do I change the default program on my startup. Microsoft updated it to their media center. And how do I change my starup programs. windows XP


You can check, remove or disable your system start-up programs with Autoruns from Sysinternals. To change a specific startup program (ie a media player) with something more suitable for your needs you should check the program's configuration to look for a "run at the startup" sort of option.

My laptop computer (windows XP, AMD 64 processor) is very difficult to start up. When I press the power button all I get is a blank screen. After 5-10 forced shut downs and startups I finally get it to...


Applications load at Startup,some may not be required. you can disable Startup applications using MSCONFIG.
  • Click Start, click Run and type MSCONFIG
  • Click Startup tab on top and view the listings.
  • Uncheck the applications which you want to disable from Startup
  • Click OK
Windows XP does not require any program for mandatory Startup.
But you should leave the following to run at Startup.
  • Firewall programs
  • Anti-virus and anti-spyware utilities
  • Keyboard software or related for hotkey functionality (this one is optional as well)
  • Software provided by your Internet Service Provider (for Internet Connectivity)
Also run a cleaning program such as Ccleaner and an antivirus program such as spybot search and destroy to make sure your system is clean and free from viruses.
