    I am having the same problem. I tried the yahoo messenger help. I even tried without my firewall. Under connections in prefeneces in yahoo messenger, they have 4 options there that you can try. It didn't work for me. I'll give a link that may help you but it didn't help me!

The Acer webcam (a Logitech) should work with all the messenger programs. at the moment, the Windows messenger appears to give the clearest images. You may have purchased el cheapo Acers (really reprehensible of Acer) loaded with Vista, but not 2 MB memory or even an M chip instead of a dual-core. If so, unfortunately, you are going to be plagued by problems of all sorts, as most agree that Vista's power-hungry maw demands this much power to run smoothly. however, you may be able to fix you webcams by moving all of your pictures to a new file---it usually works, heavens knows why. If that doesn't work, try reinstalling the webcam sofware as follows: (actually, first go to control panel, then check out device manager to see if you have any nasty big checks. If imaging defices has a big check, try reinstalling the driver there. If that doesn't fixya, click on Start, thten Acer Empowering Technology, then Acer E-Recovery, and choose Restore Apps and Drivers at the bottom of Restore tab. It will extract; then click Install for Vista or (XP) on the left - click Drivers - Camera or CCD - on the right side of the screen for your model which you saw in device manager. Please let me know if that doesnt do the trick.

So, I have had the same problem as everyone else here and on numerous other sites as well. I have tried all the "fixes" listed but to no avail. I think I have found the solution though for my computer (Acer 8730 - with Crystal Eye Webcam and Vista64).
I had my Windows Update set to automatically install updates. I went to Device Manager and uninstalled the Camera and set Windows Update to ask before updating. I restarted and voila...there's my camera and it is working. I'll post again if this stops working, but hopefully it will stay

    So, I had the same problem as everyone else has on this thread and in the many others I have read on different sites. I have an Acer 8730 with the Crystal Eye Webcam and Vista64. I have reset my Windows Update to "NOT update automatically and then opened Device Manager and uninstalled the webcam. Did a restart and the camera was reinstalled automatically and voila...there is my camera and working well so far. Windows Update was updating the driver and crashing the application. I'm almost positive this is the solution to my problem; hopefully, someone else can benefit as well..... I did find this solution on another site, but for the life of me can't remember which one of the dozens I have searched for a solution to this problem.

Try updating McAfee SiteAdvisor to the latest version: there is a conflict between slightly older versions of SiteAdvisor and the latest MSN version
