Downloading a webcam? - you mean downloading software for it? - Don't you have a CD with the software on?.

"It says it's in use but it's not" - What says what's in use?

"I tried downloading acrobat, but it won't!" - Why won't it - what error messages do you get? - what EXACTLY happens?

You'll have to describe it more clearly if anyone is to help - we can't see what you can see, and know nothing at all about your system. Help us help you.

The Labtec webcam should have come with the software CD to instal it.

When you say you have downloaded the software, do you mean you have installed it?

Try going to Control Panel, system,hardware, device manager, check to see if you have a yellow mark against the web cam /acrobat entry.If you have right click and uninstall.Highlight any other section, right click and select 'Scan for hardware changes'. If the software is on your system, it will re-install automaticly.

may I also suggest you read this of F.E."s, which give guidance on the use of appropriate thread titles for future requests?
and perhaps this thread could have been titles "problems with web cam", and also give your OS and any main programs running on it; hope this problem get sorted for you; and post back if you need further help:)

let us know how the exam goes?
