I have the following issue and was wondering whether I could receive some help. I have read through quite a few threads on this forum and tried a solution but it hasn't worked. The problem is that I whenever I try to use my webcam on a website, the AFP dialog box pops up asking me to "allow" or "deny" access to that particular website. However I can't click on yes or no because the dialog box itself freezes. The browser does not freeze as I can navigate to other parts of the website (for example, "Home"). I have tried going on to the website using different browsers but it hasn't helped.
I have tried to uninstall and re-install AFP. I have used the following procedure to uninstall and re-install AFP:
1) Download the uninstaller to desktop
2) Close all programs (including any programs in the system tray - such yahoo/msn messenger)
3) Run the uninstaller program
4) re-boot the computer
5) checked on the following page to see if the AFP had uninstalled; http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/
6) Downloaded and installed the latest version of AFP (version 10.1.82.76)
7) Restarted my computer
The above hasn't worked for me. I have checked that all my drivers are up to date for my webcam and all other hardware.
I have turned off my firewall and anti-virus but this hasn't worked. I have tried to access the hardware accelerator settings for AFP but the box keeps freezing so I can't do it. The only way I am able to get around the box is if I go to the global settings manager for AFP and click on the website and state "always allow".
Operating system - Windows Vista Home Premium 32 Bit
Web browser - Firefox 3.6.8, Internet Explorer 8, Google Chrome 5.0.375.127
Adobe Flash Player - version 10.1.82.76
Firewall/Anti-virus: Zone Alarm Extreme Security Version 9.3.014.000
Webcam: Vimicro USB 2.0 UVC PC Camera
The same problem occurs for me on all three web browsers.
Any help would be much appreciated. I hope I have given enough information.
