Hello, my girlfriend has the same problem. Before everything was working until she downloaded mcafee antivirus protection. Well, she wasn't able to get on MSN at all because that virus scan completely screwed with her computer. So i had her delete most of the components that came with the scan such as Firewall, Network protect etc. . . That fixed the problem to where she was able to get on msn however her webcam would shut down her pc. So i believe in order to run a webcam, you will never a type of Personal Firewall.
its probeily not enufff memory orrr u have a very slow computer or it could be a virus soo i advise you to scan with a virus protection software

Try this: Control Panel -> Display -> "Settings" tab -> "Advanced" button -> "Troubleshoot" tab -> "hardware acceleration". Disable this function. Try uncheck "Enable write combining" also. Good luck!
