yahoo messenger crashes



I have Windows XP home and am connected to the net over a broadband
connection. Whenever I begin a voice chat on yahoo messenger and whenever
the person at the other end starts to stream their webcam, my yahoo
messenger crashes. Is it some xp related issue. The yahoo messenger is the
latest version. I would appreciate all help. Thanks!

This is actually the Windows Messenger newsgroup so Yahoo isn't the forte here. However,
normally what you're describing is a driver issue, perhaps with the webcam or sound driver.
You might want to check the manufacturer's website for both and see if you have the latest.

Additionally, there are drivers on Windows Update ( if
you've not been there recently.
