Windows 7: Safe Windows 7 Drivers?

Safe Windows 7 Drivers?

I was searching for Windows 7 drivers for an older Logitech Webcam (2 actually, V-UW21 and V-UAP14) and ran across this site:

Logitech QuickCam V-UAP14 (Chat) Drivers Download - Update Logitech Software

It screams scam - virus - malware to me... there are no Windows 7 drivers or support on Logitech's site nor did I find any mention of Solvusoft when doing a quick search.

How do I determine if this is in fact legitimate and safe software or is instead malware?

Thanks in advance!

Always download drivers from the hardware vendor's website, if there are no Windows 7 drivers, then the device isn't supported in Windows 7.

Are the webcams USB? You may be able to the generic Windows USB drivers.

No that place wants to install a program and then charge you for a driver.

There are XP drivers on the Logitech site, you could try installing them in Compatibility Mode
