    Thank you. Where in windows explorer, can I find the files used by the web cam ? (I used before Start/regedit). ?

    Also what is the key to use for entering "safe mode" when re-boot ?

    Please advise.

    Set the computer in Save Mode , accessed the Control Panel add/remove programs, but this software is no longer there, there is nothig to remove. Again, on the registry (using from Start Menu / Run /REGEDIT) , there are 4 more files of Microsoft Life Cam , that can't be erased.These are under USB folder. When I insert the CD to re-install I got the message that program is already instaled bla bla bla. How can I remove these last 4 files remaning there. Please advise.

    No, that's not what I was asking. In the registry I deleted manually all the webcam related files except 4 that can't be deleted.
    Before sending a response please READ CAREFULLY all my comments. Now I need to download a driver as well for the webcam...

    For "findmefucan"



    "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > .................. > {6BDD1FC6-810F-11D0-BEC7-08002BE2092F}
    Have a look to see if there is a lower or upper filter. Delete both "



    - I looked following the suggested path and found 3 files :



    IEEE 1394 Bus host controllers

    Class 1394

    ICON -21



    Question : shall I delete ALL these 3 files or just selected ones ?

    Please advice. Thank you,

    Nick

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SYSTEM > CurrentControlSet > Control > Class > {6BDD1FC6-810F-11D0-BEC7-08002BE2092F}

Have a look to see if there is a lower or upper filter. Delete both .
Also check in device manager whether camera is installed . If it is installed delete them . And reboot your system and try installing the software .
Hope this helps .

Often the XP drivers are compatible with Vista, but you can always check if there is a Vista driver for the life cam. Check the Microsoft website, or use a driver finder program to locate the right driver.
