    This means you have more than one IM client trying to use the webcam.

    MSN,Yahoo,ICQ etc.

    Sometimes the software installed with your cam has it`s own IM.

    Either -

    1.Disable any other IMs running.

    2.Download SplitCamThat allows you to run several IMs.

    3.If your web cam has it`s own IM,uninstall the software and just leave the cam drivers.
