Question about Logitech QuickCam Connect Webcam

2 Answers

Communications helper.exe could someone please tell me why the Communications helper.exe that runs with the quickcam connect continues to keep on using up memory even when the camera isnt in use, the only way I seem to rectify this, is if i turn it off in task manager but then obviously the camera wont work at all then, is this a problem with all Logitech cameras, or just this one? as apart from this the camera works well, thanx for any replies, Simon

Sounds like Communications helper.exe its some type of driver and/or windows service. This would be the same for all cameras and other computer devices that utilize the Communications helper.exe driver/service. It might be possible to stop Communications helper.exe or its alias from running at start-up but its not recommended as you probably will loose functionality of the camera.

The problem with this camera driver is that the helper.exe is used to retrieve info from the net about new drivers and updates and it also sets up the sound and everything else to do with the camera, if this is dissabled; as you rightly mention you cannot use the camera so unfortunately you have to keep the file running.

Hi, i tried using skype with logitech quickcam but pup-up told me this message: Another application (communications helper.exe) tries to access Skype but we are not able to respond. Try to restart the...


The easiest thing to try is just disabling "Communication_Helper.exe" in Skype. Go to Skype / Tools / Options / Advanced, and at the bottom you will see text that says "manage other programs' access to Skype". Click that and you'll get a window, which should list "Communication_Helper.exe". Deny access to that (don't remove it, because it will just come back), and try your call again.

Be aware, however, that this is only a quick fix and does not solve the problem. When Logitech and Skype have problems like this, they can be pretty big ones, and can cause performance problems as well as interface problems.

The Logitech QuickCam application software is not required for the Logitech Camera to function properly in Skype. If you are not using the QuickCam application for anything else, then you should seriously consider uninstalling it.

That will solve this problem, and various other potential problems and performance issues, permanently.

To uninstall it just go to Control Panel / Add or Remove Software (or Uninstall a Program in Vista/7), find "Logitech QuickCam" (NOT Logitech Camera drivers), and uninstall.

Then reboot to get rid of the background processes, and test Skype again.

Go to Tools > Options > Privacy and click on the link "Manage other

32-bit self-extractor module .exe file not working on USB


Self extracting exe files tend to run unzip once they start. It may be that the usb drive is getting full before it can unzip the files or it needs to run the files on c:. You are far better copying the file onto the target computer and running from there.

Trojans wont go away. Hijackthis SCAN help


I am of the mind to do a complete reinstall of the operating system including flash the BIOS even if it is the same version. I worked many hours tracking down and thinking you found every part of the problem on to hit an .EXE and it all starts over again....I just clean out everything and start fresh.
If you tell us what make and model of computer along with the operating system it is we can direct you to the drivers for the reinstall. Some off those programs - for example AOL seem to be virus magnets. (if it is a dell it is really simple if you just put in your service code- it give you your particular driver of your computer.)
That is what I would do...Or you can keep hunting.
please leave rating,,,thank you

How to recover datas from corrupted N72 memory card


You may try this mobile phone recovery software named asoftech data recovery which helped me before. You can download trial for free
http://www.asoftech.com/adr/

Please be noted that your phone memory should show as a drive letter in your explorer, if not, you need to take out your memory card and connect using a card reader, or plug-in to card reader slot if there's any on your computer.
