You will probably have to delete the driver from the driver property page. Then reboot the computer. Then make sure there's no driver listed. Then select up the driver. Select that you have the driver. Find a driver. Install.
I use skype and the program is free for web cams. Just go to www.skype.com and download their free software for web cams. They want you to set up a user name so fill out the form they post in order to use the webcam on skype. The software should find your webcam automatically and you then can add your freinds that use skype by sending them a request. After that you can call them or they can call you. A window will pop up when you get a skype call and you can accept or reject it.
