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.

Hope this helps.

I dont know how to turn on my web cam camera ?


If you start any application which uses webcam, it should be activated automatically.
For example, use your yahoo messenger / yahoo messenger / the camera application that came along with the computer. First time you have to choose the camera / imaging device, once done from the next time onwards the application will directly open the camera.

How do I turn on my builtin webcam in my laptop?


When ever a laptop comes with an inbuilt webcam , a default application will be provided by the manufacturer to access the cam.Search for the same and use it. You can also access the cam through control panel.
One simple way is to use a IM application like Yahoo messenger or Gtalk which support video chat , it opens up the cam automatically once you start a video chat

I have an acer aspire 5735z laptop webcam


Dear Sir,

Acer Aspire Model generally comes with a bison web cam driver.
To use the web cam search for an application that installed in program files.In windows Xp web cam can be used by double clicking camera icon present in my computer. If you are using windows vista or other operating system you need an camera application software,to use it. Without application software you can use your web camera only in messengers,for example yahoo messenger. If u had an yahoo messenger login and click on view my web cam,now you can see your face in your laptop.So first thing is search for an application software installed on your laptop.


good luck

Toshiba satellite a205 webcam says locked by another application


You have an application that is grabbing the webcam on bootup, so the best way is to disable this program from runnning. To do this, click Start - Run and type "msconfig" and press enter.

Click on the Startup tab and this will bring up a list of all the things you have booting. Look for webcam manager, and remove the checkmark beside it. Click Ok and then reboot. Problem should be solverd
