Connection error

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo management program such as Picasa ( ).

That seems to happen when people mix 64-bit and 32-bit environments; either you're using RunAs in a weird way or the Intel exception BAD_IMPERSONATION_LEVEL (which you got; it's not about you, though) is your particular installation of Windows' way of whining that MSIE should be tops on your list. Maybe you need to pick a different version (e.g. 32bit) of Chrome...usually if you install on the same machine you downloaded chrome by (from you should be fine, though!

It's pretty logical for a program you uninstalled to not run anymore, on the other hand. You get to reinstall chrome from a new download and see if things improve.

Easiest way to fix that problem is to save all your important files onto an external hard drive and reformat the hard drive, otherwise you will be trying to correct this with Antivirus programs and other junk that will only cover up the error message. Alot of times it is easier to format and reinstall the operating system than try to figure out tose error codes, and windows never gets their stuff right.

Good luck.

Asus Webcam constantly being used by mystery application

Built in webcams are not the easiest to troubleshoot as its difficult to reboot the webcam software.
With my plug-in I can just disconnect it for a couple of seconds to reboot it and clear the previous program.
Its not unusual for webcam software to remain hooked up to a program even after you exit it correctly.
What is unusual with yours the webcam comes on when you start your computer.
You might try to disable your webcam and then enable it again in the 'Imaging' folder of your Device Manager to see if the webcam light goes off and remains off when you enable it again.
You should be able to see where the webcam is being used by launching your Task Manager and hitting the Application tab.
Hope you can get your problem sorted and post some information on it for future reference

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.
