    postheadericon MSN / skype messenger crash when starting webcam on acer notebook with VISTA

    PROBLEM:

    MSN stops responding when you try to use the webcam. The newer versions also crash when just starting MSN.

    The windows error log gives a kernel32.dll 

    It also manifests itself with skype. But not as a crash but the webcam  just does not start ( no led light goes on )

    SOLUTION:

    This should be the fix if it is an Acer pc.

    Remove all the Acer software from your computer ( acer empowering technology ) 

    Reboot, and all works fine!
