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!
