    You have Windows 8 or 8.1? What problem are you having with the camera application
    which leads you to want to uninstall?
    It is one of the applications that can't be uninstalled. (Neither the camera or the Photos App can be removed. You can remove the screen from the beginning, but you cannot uninstall those apps).

    Yes, it is compatible with Windows 8.1 since it works in my laptop even without installing the supplied software suite. I had to install it for Win XP but win 8 pilots inside to operate the camera. Try it on a different usb port. Remove and uninstall the software from the Control Panel programs and do a system restart. Let the appliance must be installed by windows with it is in built drivers. This would remove any incompatibility between Windows and drivers you have installed.

    What is the name of the application that you use to display pictures?

    What is the name of the application / / program you are using to view videos?

    In general, the programs that are included for free as part of the standard Windows Operating System 10 are adequate without necessarily being "best in class".

    No matter what you use now, there are alternatives to the native products installed on your computer.

    You can choose to download / buy tools that meet your standards.

    All programs and applications that discovered the Photos and allow you to view videos are dependent on the ability of your computer to display the content in a high enough resolution to make the Visual result is pleasant to the eye.  This means that your computer must be able to display the content.

    The specificationsindicate that your computer has a resolution of 1366 x 768; This limitation can lead to (seemingly) minor gaps when you try to view certain types of HD content (very high density photos and videos).

    Good luck.

  • Download broken Windows 7 Camera Codec Pack


    I can't get my hands on the Windows 7 Camera Codec Pack. All of the links no longer work, and all I can find is the versions of Windows 8, which will not be installed. It is absolutely vital for the workflow of my company, and I managed to install from this article only a couple of months.

    I tried to find mirrors or links to work and can't. Any help is very grateful.

  • Windows 8 Metro apps does not open

    Windows 8 Metro Apps does not and can not access the Windows store.  I tried Apps Troubleshooter who said that he could not solve the problem.  I tried to do a restore.  It is said that he cannot fix error.  I read one post from another who says all this happened when they uninstalled McAfee.  They believe that uninstalled McAfee deleted an important dll.   My Acer Aspire also came with McAfee installed and I uninstalled it when the trial period has expired.   I think that's when my problems started.   The other user said that the metro Apps worked once they bought McAfee.   Does anyone have a solution that does not involve the purchase of McAfee?

    Windows 8 Metro Apps and the store will not open once again.

    I was unable to open Metro applications and Windows store.   I received help suggesting that I create a new user.   It worked for a day.   Then, I was not able to open Metro applications using the newly created user account.    So I tried to create another user, with another email address and the password that is different.  I received an error message that something went wrong and new account has been created not Code error 0 x 0070003.    Then I removed the new user created the day before and I tried again.  Same result.


    I ran SFC/scannow and received the error message the Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them.   Details in Log/CBS.log.    I was unable to open this file to view details - need to contact the administrator.    My user has ability to administrator access code.


    I ran Refresh and error message received: redraw of your PC problems.  Has been no change.

  • Change the default font size Windows 8 Mail app

    Original title: Calibri 12 No 11?

    Why is the font of default mail Calibri 12 and not 11? All other MS products use Calibri 11 and my emails look like they came the first blackberry whenever my colleagues open them. The solution is to change each email to Calibri 11, but it's so ghetto. How to get something like this loser? Please tell me the registry key to resolve this issue.

    Looks like 8 win mail application is a total bust. I found the "Windows Live Mail" app where I can add all my accounts and customize the default fonts. The behavior is similar to outlook. hope that helps people.

  • The camera app stuck and camera screen is off.

    Original title: using the camera in windows application 8

    I took a video of 4 seconds with the video camera app and now the screen is stuck in 4 seconds at the bottom of the screen and the camera is not turned on. There is no arrow on the right or left side of the screen to access the video either. Please tell me how this erase and start over. Thank you very much.


    All other applications work properly on the PC?

    If the camera app is still stuck, then I suggest you to complete the application process camera from the Task Manager.

    a. from the desktop, right-click on the taskbar and choose Task Manager.

    b b.. now, on the process tab, select camera and click on end task.

    Please note: the camera app can stay or come slowly if you have just started Windows, or have simply picked up the PC from sleep. If the PC performs a large amount of background processes, as it does when the start or resumption of his sleep, this will affect the performance of the camera application. The app must iron out and improve performance in a short period of time, when there is less background running processes.

    You can run the Troubleshooter of Apps.  This tool can automatically identify and fix problems with the applications.

    Let us know if it helps. If you have any other questions, we will be happy to help you.

    permissions to access the item.
    Other image programs work (Paint, Windows Media Player, Windows Photo Viewer, etc..) and can display the pictures and videos.

    It's on a new installation of Windows 8, which replaced a Windows 7 installation, with nothing recorded, from a SSD drive.  Everything seemed to work so I started to install software and data, when I noticed the problem with the Photos App.  I installed Windows Media Center, Office 2010, Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 and some small programs and applications.
    When it is started in safe mode, open the Photos App produces the following message is displayed:

    I'm open to ideas.

    This behavior has emerged in the last days and the problem is that Kaspersky has marked these apps as "not reliable."


    (1) open the 'Applications updates' section of Kaspersky Security Intrernet. A new window will open.

    (2) in the dropdown in the top left corner, select 'all '.

    (3) in the search box of the appearance of the upper right corner (the one with the magnifying glass) to Skydrive, calendar, Chat, or any other application does not.

    (4) 'files' (with extension *.html and a few others) will appear. These files will be marked with a red circle and the text 'Not reliable' (or something similar) or with a yellow circle and the text 'Minimum restricted' (or something similar)

    (5) select with the mouse each of these files (one by one) that appeared in your search and press the secondary button. A new menu will appear with the option "move group". Inside this option, you need to tell the program that you want to move each of these files to the Group of "reliable." A few seconds later, you will see how the red circle turns green.

    (6) run your mosaic application. It should work perfectly.
