"Manycam" (without the quotes) in the white search area then hit the
search mirror. When it brings back your results look for the one that
says ManyCam Virtual Webcam. Down load it and install it. Make sure

only want to install ManyCam, no additions whatsoever during the install.
ManyCam is totally FREE and easy to use, and you will always know where your
webcam software is.
