If the logitech toolbar has been successfully downloaded the problem may be either the webcam software needs rebooting ( unplug it from the USB port and plug it back in after a few seconds ) or you may have some sort of software conflict with another program on your computer.
Open the setup installer qc848enu.exe and unpack its contents to a
folder. Alternatively, right click on qc848enu.exe and select “Extract
to qc848enu\” option.
Insert or plug in the Logitech QuickCam Messenger to a USB port if not already done so.
An “Driver Software
Installation” icon in systray (notification area) should appear, which
will pop up detailed message if click. It should fail, and “Add
Hardware Wizard” dialog window will appear. Choose to install the
driver manually by instructing the Wizard to locate and look for the
web cam driver inside the Drivers folder under the unpacked folder of
the qc848enu.exe setup program. You can use browser button to select
Windows Vista should grab the XP driver and install it properly.
Download the latest version (10.5.1) of Vista compliant QuickCam software from Logitech to install the software on Vista.
Run the setup (qc1051enu) normally. You may need to skip the detection of webcam near the end of installation process.
do a cam/mic test in the audio/video settings in the tools tab in yahoo. Then you need to minimise the yahoo screen and right click on the cam icon in the taskbar and check that the mic and cam are enabled and that it is set to allow other programes to take control of this device
Do you mean the desktop icon itself, or the taskbar icon?
If you just want the desktop icon back, navigate to "program files / logitech/ quickam" folder. Right click on the "quickcam" (it will have a pic of the eyeball camera). Click "create shortcut". Drag that shortcut icon to the desktop.
To make the the taskbar icon, make another shorcut, and drag it to the taskbar.
when you were installing the software did a taskbar pop up appear and tell you that hardware was found, and then proceeded to install the cam and inform you that the Logitech STX is now installed and ready for use?
If not then the cam may need to be tried in another usb port as of yet it has not been recognised by windows.
Also if this is being used on a laptop, sometimes there is not enough power amps being sent be the usb port to recognise, again trying a different port may solve that.
If all else fails re install the software again, but make sure windows is allowing the cam to work, as sometimes there is an updater programme that works in conjunction with the cam to update drivers etc, this will probably be being dissalowed by either windows or your internet security programme and any part of the software that is being blocked may be stopping your cam also.
