Windows 7: Trouble with HP Mediasmart Webcam Software

Trouble with HP Mediasmart Webcam Software

Hey guys, this is my first time posting (and I apologize, I am not all together tech savvy).

I found this post through google (Hp Mediasmart Webcam Problem) and am facing a similar problem with my laptop. Since installing Windows 7 (I have an HP Pavilion dv5 -1233se) I'm unable to access my webcam (although it still works through websites and programs like Skype). I tried downloading drivers earlier in the day and have no been searching for the HP MediaSmart Software. After following the steps in the thread posted above, I keep getting an error message saying "The program can't start because WMVCore.DLL is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem." Continuous attempts at reinstalling led me to googling the DLL file for solutions but they all seem fairly lengthy and I worry I might mess up my computer.

If you have any suggestions please let me know!
