Windows 7: WebCam never working

WebCam never working

Hello everyone,

So the problem is, I've bought a WebCam for the third time and it's always not working..

I am pretty sure it's drivers issue, I have a small disc inside the package but not even these drivers are working for some reason, to be honest I am planning to format my PC if I don't find a solution for this by tomorrow..

Here is the Device Manager

Here is the Devices and Printers

I tried some programs/scanners that will search for drivers, it installed the same as in the disc I think but different version, still not working.

Some more pictures just incase:

Thanks for reading, much appreciated.

First run a System File Check
On a CMD window type sfc /scannow

As it's MS driver don't see why you're having problems.
Found this link for the drives

Well, sfc /scannow showed no error but I formatted my PC and it got fixed >.< Everything seems to work fine now.

Thanks once again for your advice.
