You have two choices

1: Look/Hope for updated drivers
2: Get a different webcam

With the webcam crash I did check for updated drivers... none supported. So I bought a new cam for XP, Vista and Win7. Still does the same thing. Updated drivers... still same ole thing... ???

Are you the OP under a new alias?

I would start a new thread with specifics about your webcam and how/where you got your drivers.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
