Question about Computers & Internet
Hi, although my computer is up-to date I get a message to restart my computer to finish updates every time I switch on.
I think that is because you have the updates automatically turned on go to the security settings and check you automatic update settings in control panel

If you don't have or cant find the driver you will need to download one here rather doing a driver hunt which can take hours
It might take some time being a freeware driver solution
Note: This will find all of your outdated drivers
This program will automatically search for and find the correct driver
you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you want to restart or make a system restore point.
Click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated.
Some webcams and programs require additional software, although that should be installed with the webcam if things are right.
But is does not harm to check if your Java, Flash and Quicktime software are installed and up to date.
But certainly check your DirectX software, since all video applications, including webcams, use DirectX for video processing.
Try downloading the latest DirectX version and install it (Windows XP: DirectX 9.0c - Windows Vista: DirectX 10).
Go to Facebook and log into your account.
Click the "Profile" tab.
Click the "Video" link in the "Status" menu.
Select the "Record a Video" option. For privacy reasons, Facebook requests permission to access your webcam and microphone.
Check the box next to "Allow" and click "Close."
You will appear in real time on the Facebook webcam window.
Position yourself in front of the webcam and click the red "Record" button to begin recording your new video. When you're finished, press the "Stop" button.
Click the "Play" button to view your video.
If you want to post it on your profile, add a brief message and click "Share."
If you're not satisfied with the outcome, press "Reset" and record a new video.
Log into your Facebook account
Navigate through your friends list and select the friend you want to send a video message to on Facebook.
Click the "Send Message" link in the upper-right corner of your friend's page.
Click the "Video" icon in the attachments section at the bottom of the "New Message" window.
Check the box next to "Allow" to give Facebook permission to access your webcam and microphone, and then click "Close."
Press "Record" and record your new video message. Click "Stop" when you're finished recording. When you're finished recording, you can press "Play" to preview your video.
Hope this helps.
