what are facing is a problem caused by a virus that either destroys files that support .exe applications to run or it replaces which makes your machine unstable. my first solution to you is to repair your operating system using the operating system cd. secondly, if that doesn't work please try installing a second os on your system and then you do a dual booting. u then delete the folder of the previous os. if that does not work u backup ur files and then you format ur system with a new os

Keep getting following error in Outlook 2007:

Fault bucket errors can be caused by many things. Sometimes it is a program that is using memory improperly. Also, it can be a hardware issue with the RAM itself.
You can Google RAM TEST and find programs that will test your RAM. MS makes one that you make a boot disk and run it.
Also, it never hurts to open your computer and make sure the RAM is seated properly. The last time I saw many random bucket errors it turned out to be 2 of 3 RAM sticks weren't properly seated.

Webcam always comes up as in use by another applicatio

Each time this problem comes up, try opening your task manager to see whether any program related to the webcam is running. If there is, you might need to uninstall the program. Try uninstalling and reinstalling you webcam driver too. You might have installed a spurious program that is constantly running the webcam.

Close the other video streaming application to start video

Your camera is already online. Double click the camera icon in the lower right task bar and it will work. That is the problem, the program is trying to run twice. Again, the camera is online and working and the access to it is in the task bar at the bottom. You, of course, can change these setting if you like.

Exception ereaderror

This seems to be a service on your computer failing to load during startup. You need to check your start-up programs for this file. To do this, click Start-->Run, type "msconfig". When the dialog windows opens, go to the "Startup" tab. Scroll through the list of applications started everytime you boot the computer. If you find "77301443.exe", disable it by unchecking the box next to its name, and click Ok.
You will be prompted to reboot your computer. 
However, before rebooting your computer. It would be a good idea to run any anti-virus or anti-spyware software, clean any viruses or spyware, and then reboot the computer.
When it reboots, check for the application error again. I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
Thank You, Raph30
