Dell Inspiron and Vista Home Basic ... Webcam problems

Posts

#1
A few months ago I uninstalled my webcam because I was having problems with it. When I reinstalled it, it said that parental controls were enabled and now I cannot use my webcam. I am an administrator on the laptop and I never set a password. How do I disable the controls ??

Thanks.

To disable the User Account Controls:
1. Open Control Panel
2. Type in "UAC" in the search box (without the speech marks).
3. Click the link "Turn User Account Control (UAC) on or off".
4. On the next screen you should uncheck the box for “Use User Account Control (UAC)”, and then click on the OK button.
5. You’ll need to reboot your computer before the changes take effect.
