    Web cam - keep getting incessant Camera connected notifications

    Hi folks

    any way to disable webcam connection notifications -- this seems to happen an amazingly large number of times -- Is there any method to supress the messages -- I really only need messages to tell me is something ISN'T working !!!! or is Windows so amazed that something WORKS so it has to tell you !!!!.

    Hi there

    Laptop is fine --it's the external USB webcam / mike that I've installed on a Desktop computer -- works 100% correctly but whenever I start a skype video call message pops up. I've got skype in background so I don't logout of it - and it starts automatically when I boot into Windows.
