How do i get my vivicam 3780s to flash jusy once? [it always has two flashes when taking pics]

That's just the way the camera works. The first flash allows the camera to judge how much light it needs, and it sets the second flash appropriately when it takes the picture. More sophisticated (and expensive) cameras have a manual mode, where the power of the flash is controlled manually, eliminating the need for the first, pre-flash. With most point&shoot cameras, you're stuck with it.

Where can i download the software to use the webcam function for a vivicam 3780s camera?

Nowhere. The ViviCam was designed to store images and videos to a memory card (or internal memory), not to stream them live to an external device. It's a camera, not a web cam.
