    I have an intel CS331 webcam, windows xp pro, and latest version of yahoo.

    When i run yahoo and start up webcam, it will run for about 5-10 seconds, then the image will freeze for about 5 minutes, then unfreeze and run fine, until i shut it down and start it up again.


    Any suggestions apart from reformat?

    Many thanks for your help
