3. follow the setup exactly
4. when you get to the video setup click on the name of your webcam from the drop down menu.
5. then finish the setup

Sounds like you need to uninstall the camera software by going to add/remove programs in the control panel and reinstall. Some other program has stolen the drivers for your camera or the camera has associated itself with another program.
I had the same problem with my VAIO E series motion eye webcam . I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers from device manager, but didnt do any good.Sometimes the device didnt even show up. So finally I uninstalled the driver and installed the win xp driver from the sony vaio support page even though I had Win 7. Now under Imaging devices in Device manager it shows 'Sony Visual Communication camera' but it works perfectly fine.
Dont uninstall the webcam companion just yet.Might be hard to get it back.
Try doing this and see if it works with webcam companion. or else you can try other free webcam softwares like ManyCam.
for this you can first uninstall the camera i mean go to start click on control pannel and then addremove programs , once you are there , uninstall the utility of camera , and restart the computer , once restarted reinstall the camera utility with the disc provided by the manufacturer. it will start working fine
hope this resolves the issue.
if you are using internet explorer 8 then go to control pannel then addremove programs , and remove internet explorer 8 from the list , before doing it make sure that you make a back up of al your favriots , as they will be lost once you uninstall i.e 8 . once done with uninstallation of i.e 8 , restart the computer and go to addremove programs again , on the right hand side select add remove windwos components , uncheck internet explorer and click next , once done with it , restart the computer, go to addremove prog again , then to add remove windwos components , check the internet explorer and click next this wil reinstall the internet explorer on the computer, and once done try using internet explorer for logging in to face book . this time it would not log you off.
Did it ever work before?
Is it compatable with your OS?
Disconnect it, Uninstall the driver, reboot your system, install the driver, reboot your system again, once powerd up, connect your webcam, you should get; new hardware found, wait till every thing installs and try using your webcam.
Providing you have the correcy driver, your webcam should function now.
I hope this helped, good luck and have a nice day.
