    You think Microsoft would help with this problem. It's frustrating. My webcam won't work either. Then you have to pay to chat with someone. I really need help to talk to my son in Iraq, if anyone can help me, thank you and God bless.

Stopping Yahoo messenger loading auto matically


you can try the following .

If you have Vista:
Go to start>search
Type "run"
Proceed as follows.


If you have Windows XP:
Go to start>run
Type in "msconfig"
Go to the tab that says "startup"
Uncheck Yahoo Messenger.
Click "OK"

I'm sure you can also do this by going through the Yahoo Messenger's properties and options. I don't use IM, so I can't guide you through that.

Will not work with yahoo

My Lifecam vx- 1000 wasn't working on Yahoo messenger initially. After hours of researching i came across the solution that worked for me.

In "properties" limit the USB bandwidth used - by unchecking "Auto" in configuration and decreasing the speed manually (bring it down from 6mbps to 3).

This is what worked for me, hope this helps!
