CyberLink YouCam Issue on Z570

Wanting to take a picture of myself for a rail card I decided to use the only software I have that will take a photo on my webcam, Lenovo CyberLink YouCam. Upon loading I am faced with this message:

 

"YouCam cannot connect to your webcam (Lenovo EasyCamera). Try selecting another capture device within settings, or close any aplications that may be using this webcam and then restart youCam."

 

The built-in webcam is the only device I have;

All other programmes are closed.

 

How can I fix this problem (i.e. how can I use the webcam by itself, without skype etc for taking a photo)

 

Thanks

Is the camera on?
Try Fn +Esc key combination.

That was one of the first things I tried after reading about loads of wierd and wonder shortcuts on these keyboards.

 

Any other ideas?

 

Thanks
