on the home page you should see a search tab just type in what you are looking for
IE: webcam name webcam driver you might have to try a few times to get it right
this will automatically search for and find the correct driver
you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you
want to restart or make a system restore point click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated
Some webcams and programs require additional software, although that should be installed with the webcam if things are right.
But is does not harm to check if your Java, Flash and Quicktime software are installed and up to date.
But certainly check your DirectX software, since all video applications, including webcams, use DirectX for video processing.
Try downloading the latest DirectX version and install it (Windows XP: DirectX 9.0c - Windows Vista: DirectX 10).
hope this helps

uninstall the program, reboot your computer, and then install the latest version again from scratch.
until you know what the problem is you cant fix it or you might try
you could run the check disk utility
click start?run type?cmd then type?chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to repair any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive this should schedule to happen when you restart your computer then defragment your hard drive
do not do anything while chkdsk is in process any input may damage your computer
