sm bus controller and LifeCam 2.4 problem

I tried everything what possible - read google, patched my MB (ASUS),
tried Intel utilities. What is strange any Intel utilities don't run on 7.
I choose vista 64. NO luck. see attach...

MB: ASUS P5E-VM HDMI Chipset G35
Intel Core 2 DUO E6550 @2.33
8GB Windows 7 64bit
After installation everything run smoothly. I installed only Network driver.
My problem LifeCam VS1000.
When installed latest 2.4 software 64 bit the progress bar repeted installation about 10 times. finally installed.
During installation I saw notification LifeCam installed WebCam Driver cannot be installed.
I don't care about SM BUS controller if it not affect my CAM.

May be somebody can suggest what to do with CAM.
I saw topics when the same cam had problems on XP SP3.
I used it on Vista Ultimate and business without problem.

What could be done?
