Hi - Stopping Camera Startup If you wish to stop the webcam from activating on startup in Windows XP or Vista, delete the software's shortcut from your Startup folder. Access the folder in the "Programs" section of the Start menu. If your camera software does not have a shortcut in the folder, access the "Run" dialog box, type "msconfig" and press "Enter." A configuration utility will appear. Disable the software from the "Startup" tab of the window. The link from where I found this Information
I wish it were as simple as that. There is no camera window coming up. Only the LED that shows the camera is ON. I suspect it is related to some kind of optional face identification log-on procedure, but I do not see any such app or service. E.g. here, but I don't have VeriFace which is Vista+ only. Adi
