Your camera software is running in the background as it is loading when windows starts.
goto Start - Run - then enter 'msconfig' - Selective Startup - you will be able to pick which programs is for your camera. Remove the checkmark then click apply. That is a temp fix, if that fix your issue then you'd need to remove that program from the startup folder.

here are the steps that you need to do.. First turn off User Account Control (UAC),. That is under control panel. Then download camera assistant software and save it in your desktop desktop. You can get it at support.toshiba.com for US model or toshiba.ca/support for canadian model. Make sure you properly save it on your desktop. Then uninstall camera assistamt software from the add remove programs. Re start your notebook. Then install the camera assistant software. Re start again your notebook. Launch camera assistant software. It will work this time.
You need to uninstall first the camera assistant software under control panel, programs and features. Once you've uninstall it, Re-install the software update that you've downloaded. It should allow you to re install it. After installaing and before you restart, go to user accounts and turn off the User Account Control.
I guarantee you that it will work this time and you wont have the error message again.
