Cyber Link You Cam

Postby hazel20 » 02 Dec 2015 15:19

A few days ago I noticed a little icon at the bottom right hand side of my screen that I hadn't seen before. I hovered over it and it said Cyber Link Webcam. I wondered what it was but didn't do anything more.

Today my Google Chrome wouldn't load any internet pages .....I switched to Internet Explorer to find a solution. It seems to be linked to the You Cam ???

Tried to uninstall Youcam - but get a warning message that Skype has to be closed.

Have closed Skype but still get the same warning and cannot uninstall Youcam.

Tearing my hair out as I am desperately trying to write my talks for Balmoral, and every day matters so a whole day lost today is a big deal.

Any suggestions???

I'm probably not best placed to advise on this since I don't use Skype or a webcam and I'd never heard of Cyber Link - until now. However...

If Skype needs to be closed but the Cyber Link application still can't be uninstalled it's possible that a Skype process is still active. It's worth opening Task Manager and looking for a Skype-related background process. If you find one, click the name of the process and then End Task, then try again to uninstall Cyber Link.
