Re-install the cam software again, if everything works properly after that then fine, if not then un-install it again using ...

click here

during the un-install (if you need to do that again), when you are asked if you want to re-start your pc now, decline do not re-start pc at this point. Continue with the Revo un-install as this program goes a bit further than most un-installers. When you get the window with choices to Select all and then Delete - do so. Continue until Revo has done its stuff, does not take long. When finished you can then re-start your pc to complete the process - you will now have a good clean-slate to re-install your cam software again, which should then work ok.

Good luck - I use the Quickcam Pro9000.

sorry peeps forgot to mention im using xp pro sp3
and 2 gig of system ram.

i tried the latest version but still same problem, but only after a few weeks it plays up again.
i will try the revo prog to see if that helps :)

got in from work, booted my pc and it has started
again, when the desktop eventually comes up so does
the pop up window saying please wait while logitech quickcam tries to reinstall itself :(

I am using version is this the same as yours?

Also have you tried the Logitech website FAQ and/or contacted Logitech. I found them quite helpful when I had a small problem with mine on first setting it up.
