I have windows 7 64 bit.
I am using a Creative live! socialize webcamera VF0640. It was being detected as a creative webcam correctly until a few weeks ago, where i noticed it is now showing as a vimicro usb 2.0 PC Camera. It has stopped working with skype and i can just see a black screen. Also does not work with msn.
I have tried installing the drivers from http://support.creative.com/Products/ProductDetails.aspx?catID=218&subCatID=218&prodID=19105&prodName=Live!+Cam+Socialize&subCatName=Web+Cameras&CatName=Web+Cameras&VARSET=prodfaq:PRODFAQ_19105,VARSET=CategoryID:218
The driver never installs as whenever i plug in the camera to finish off the driver install, windows update automatically installs the camera driver and shows it as Vimicro. I have tried the various options of going into gpedit.msc and setting the option in devices to never install drivers etc, but none of them work and windows always installs the drivers as soon as i plug the usb camera in.
Any help with this for me to get it working?
