It might be best to uninstall the software and load it again after a restart of the computer. I have had this before on equipment I have installed, although not a web cam. After that it seemed ok. Sorry not much more help for you.

Did you install before plugging the webcam in? Most equipment needs to be done that way.

Maybe the lens needs cleaning!

  oldbeefer2 22:54 30 Aug 2009

Or take the lens cap off! Only joking!!

how do you clean the lens

Is it out of focus?
This article here mentions "Adjusting the focus is not difficult at all, even though it is a manual affair performed by turning the adjustment ring around the lens itself."
Scroll down to the LifeCam in use chapter.

If needed, the lens should be cleanable using a clean soft cloth - but as Les28 suggests, perhaps it just needs focusing.

The review in Les28's link says that it has the best Resolution settings of any webcam ... No it hasn't, check out the Logitech Pro9000 click here
