  2. We have a few PCs round the house and had this same problem. I found the
    constant involved was driver updates. Some webcam manufacturers' driver
    installation programs are very Adobe-like, and leave remnants on the drive
    as well as the registry. Nonetheless run your uninstallation program after
    downloading the new drivers for your cam, and see what happens.
