Windows 7: W7 Freezes, and Then BlueScreens - Details In Post

26 May 2010   #11

XP/Windows 7

Currently im using Microsoft Security Essentials, as i was told it was quite good and got the job done. Also windows Firewall.

Cannot find the drivers. Sometimes when i plug the webcam in it says "Device has malfunctioned" error, other times it works. But even when the webcam is in, i dont think i can uninstall the drivers, just the hardware?

Will try it anyway. Getting Malwarebytes now

PS - Do the drivers HAVE to be in the system32 folder. I have a folder named "eyetoy" with a lot of files named ov519. Will deleting the folder help.

Go to Control Panel > Devices and Printers and see if the webcam is there. It it is listed, right click on it. Select Remove device if that option is offered. If it is not select Properties and click on the hardware tab. Select Uninstall driver.

Thanks for that. Im used to XP so find it hard to navigate my way around such things.

Malwarebytes has been running a quick scan and hasnt found a thing. Im guessing it may have just been 3 drivers that have been the main cause of problems?

I will be able to let you know tomorrow on happenings, as im from the UK. I will be using the Computer from 4PM onwards tomorrow, so will notify you of any errors (if i get any).

Thanks a lot CarlTR6 for your patience and help, and i hope you have solved my problems.

Will inform you of updates, and again, thanks! (Rep Given)

Thank you for the rep. I hope this solves your problem. If not, we will did deeper.

I am glad to learn that you apparently do not have any malware. By the way, MSE and Windows firewall are good choices. They will adequately protect you and will not cause problems with your system.
