Question about Acer Aspire 5670 Notebook
When I first got my acer laptop (2006) my acer orbicam worked fine. but all of sudden (2007) my acer webcam stopped working. i mean i could open the program, but it would say: "Camera is in use by another application" which i dont think is true b/c i know what application i opened... I try to google search this but i couldnt find related info to this just a bunch of acers orbis not working due to windows vista. i really dont want to reformat the comp if i can. but the whole "camera is in use by another app" freaks me out. do you think someone hacked into my acct and is using/seeing me w/o my knowledge.... ok i dont know if i sound weird.. but i dont know. im not that tech-saavy... can you advise? =(
It may be cases of a spyware which grabs the images and send to the hacker. Try to scan the system using an updated antivirus. Also diabel the unwanted startup items using msconfig.

I,d suggest trying the camera on a different Laptop Or Computer.
Also, if you have the Original Drivers Or setup CD.
Uninstall And re-install the Camera, with the setup disk.
I really don,t like or advise the use of Vista. As it has so many bugs and glitches, still to be fixed.
The second option, is to use the system restore, and reset to a point before the problems began.
