Camera assistant software not working

Everytime I try clicking on my webcam it says cannot open file corona\start_bg.bmp . How do I fix this or get that file back. Do I have to uninstall the camera assistant software and reinstall it? If so, how would I do that? I recently downloaded Skype and also want the Web Cam (Chicony Camera Assistant Software) in lid of my Toshiba Laptop (P205-S6267) ... to turn on.

The Icon for this Web Cam is in my Task bar, however I can not find any mention of it among my list of downloaded programs.

I am unsure re. which model of Web Cam, I have. Could this be the model #?? UVC

Thank you for any help.
Shar I turn on the program for my camera, and all I get is Graph Render Fail, what am I supposed to do to make my darn camera work? I tried finding help on the site, but it's useless, nothing for troubleshooting. The day I got the PC, the camera worked fine and everything, and today, nothing... Can someone help me? Thanks I have a New Laptop Toshiba P300-13J
The built in web camera vision and all extra's work's fine
But I have no Audio
When I go to the web cam pop up screen and settings then Audio then Audio output then Audio device it is shows blank
Then when I go to the help file it shows I should have ( Vinyl AC'97 Audio (wave) showing
Thank you

If you hold down SHIFT and right click on a BMP file, then select "open with" and choose the MS Paint option. This should let you open the BMP file and also provide an option to use as the default viewer.

if you do not know where the file is... goto start, search, for file and search for coronastart_bg.bmp

go here pick your model number / operating system. download / save to desktop and install. note vista users right click and run as administrator. and then

1. Click the Windows Start button.
2. Click Control Panel, System and Maintenance and then Device Manager.
3. Right-click on Chicony USB 2.0 Camera and select Update Driver Software. A yellow exclamation point indicates that the camera is recognized by Windows but is not working properly, probably because of problem with the device driver
4. Select Browse my computer for the driver software.
5. Select Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer.
6. Select USB Video Device from the list, and click Next.
7. If the message “Windows encountered a problem installing the driver software for your device” appears, click Close.
8. Restart Windows.
this bug is tricky good
