I have a Toshiba Satellite P200 with a built-in webcam. I recently tried to open it and it came up with a message "locked by another application" but I can't find any program using it. Can anyone advise me how I can find out what is using the webcam?

Seems to be a very common problem. Check Toshiba's website for an update or patch

Thanks for the info Mark. I tried updating the camera driver even though I haven't upgraded to Vista Ultimate but it searched the internet for a newer driver but came back with the message "the latest driver is already installed" Never mind, I will just wait and see if it does it again, at the moment the camera is working fine. Once again, thanks for your help
Regards
Terry
