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


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 )


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!
