Hi,
Decided to post it here, I was not getting any response from Windows Vista section. Perhaps not too many go there.
Problem occurs when I click on video when in Msn. Says Camera cannot be accessed. Tried various suggestions from searching tne web including setting Live to run as administrator and then tried resetting McAfee site advisor's file sassets.exe via note pad but could not change it. Any help suggestions very welcome. From the web this is a known problem but some solutions seem to work for some but not all. The error code is ox8ac70013. Thanks

Built-in or third-party firewall disabled? Camera drivers fully up to date? Camera working in other applications? Latest version of Messenger? Tell us what you've tried...

McAfee Firewall, Camera drivers are up to date. Camera normally working in other environments.Messenger is the latest and I am on Vista Premium with SP1. The camera software is Cyberlink YouCam1 which came with the laptop. I have already tried the above as stated. Nothing seems to work. Kept saying the Cam is used by another application which it isn't.
