    I have a PC just like yours. What you do is go to My Computer and look for your webcam; then click on the icon with the webcam/camcorder on it and it should open a windows where you get to see yourself. Next, look on the right at the tool bar and simply click on "take snapshot"; thats all there is to it

    However, if it is not under My Computer, the take the installation disk you got with the PC and look for the "drivers". These allow you to activate hardware such as webcams. Once you find the webcam driver, simply install it and proceed to step 1.

    Hope this helps...dont hesitate to ask for more help if you need some.

    What computer brand do you have? Be VERY specific, becuase i might be able to find you a driver.
