To fix this, open Task Manager (CTRL + Shift + Escape) and End Task of all the applications that may use the webcam. After this process, the webcam will be used exclusively by the ArcSoft WebCam Companion. As a side note, the webcam can't be used to stream the same image in different applications at the same time. This is the reason you received that message.
