Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-1000 Webcam
Am attempting to install my Microsoft Lifecam X1000 on my Vista 64bit operating system. I have installed the software, Vista has searched and found drivers, I am now at the point where it is setting up the audio and visual bits and pieces. I do the sound check, and my speakers work fine. I then go to the microphone check, and usualy it works fine, but sometimes it indicates the sound is very loud and automatically moves the volume slider right to the bottom, but the sound indicator is still in the red. There is no excessive noise. When it does this and I click on next, the program freezes (says the program is not responding). If the microphone section works OK, I then go to the video section, where it then freezes before showing a preview. Sometimes it comes up with the text telling me I can do adjustments, sometimes it just comes up with a black box. If I attempt to close the program in task manager it will not close and I have to restart my computer. When it freezes, it also freezes my MSN.
Solutions I have tried:
I have tried leaving the window open, for up to 3 hours. It did not recover from the not responding freeze and I had to restart my computer.
I have unplugged the camera, uninstalled the software and then restarted my computer, re-installed the software, then replugged the camera in and attempted to set it up again.
I have looked in device manager and it tells me the camera is working.
I have used device manager to check if the drivers are up to date and they are.
Is there anything else I can do before I throw this stupid thing through the window??? I have tried setting this up about 50 times and I am really at my wits end...
Go on this site and download the driver,
hope it helps.

Place the LifeCam VX-1000 on a flat, level surface, or hang it from your computer's monitor. Continue following the wizard prompts until the installation wizard finishes.
Click the "Start" button, then click "All Programs" on the Start menu.
Click the "Microsoft LifeCam" folder icon in the list of programs on the Start menu, then click the "LifeCam" icon. That opens the LifeCam VX 1000 software and completes the installation process.
