no muvee on my system ( it was an overhaul job where I think the tech guy replaced vista with windows 7 and started everything from scratch - sans the muvee ). just another question, in the webcam setup options, if I choose one like - yahoo - is that a permanent setup process? can i undo it to another at a later date?

OK here is an option.
Dowload Microsfts Moviemaker for Win7.
Here is the link
You should be able to make a movie that you can see and save.
Free Video Editing Software | Download Windows Live MovieMaker


I just checked it out. It also has MS Messenger Live which is what I use.
If you uncheck everything except Moviemaker then you will only get Moviemaker installe.
Hope this helps.

Do you havea HP recovery disk?
The software that HP sends out that is a simple program to work with your webcam is called HP Quickplay V3. They have updates on the HP support page but they say it is on the original recovery disk and show how to just install it.
LINK to the Vista install 32bit

Does the webcam show in your Device Manager? Is there a yellow question mark next to it?

If there is, then you need to install the driver for the webcam.

I'm so glad we were able to help. I appreciate you willing to work with me and the many messages. It is always nice to finalize a problem and everyone is happy.

Come back again and take a look at some of the other issues people have making videos and you may learn somehting newe.
I learn more each day coming here.

Have a great day!
