OK, let me just say a few things here:
Firstly, get with the times, Andrea. You can't use WLE 2009 forever. At some point, you'll be forced to use something newer (say WLE 2019) and that rapid jump in versions is going to confuse you a lot. Whereas if you upgrade on each version, you won't have as steep of a learning curve.
Secondly, learn a bit about computer security. By not having an antivirus installed, coupled with using old versions of sotware (which definitely have more exploits), you're just crying to get a virus on your system.
Thirdly, start using operating systems as they were designed to be used. Rather than turning Windows 7/ Windows 8 into a half-a**ed mix of Windows 98 & XP, try using the OS as it is out of the box. I'm sure Windows 7 is more efficient in day-to-day usage without all those XP elements lying around it. Just because you're not comfortable with the way a certain function works in an OS does not mean you need to bring said OS' functionality back by 10+ years.
Fourth: Stop moaning about the ribbon. I'm putting this in its' own paragraph, because it seems to be one of your main reasons to avoid anything remotely modern. As it has been stated at least 20 times in all your threads combined, there is a way to hide the ribbon in almost any application, after which the difference between a ribbon version of an application and its' menu counterpart is absolutely minimal.
Fifth: Stop putting your name at the end of each of your posts. It's already visible in both your username and your signature. You do not need to spell it a third time in the frigging god-damned post! (If it isn't apparent, this has started to get on my nerves.)
If I have to, I'm going to save this post on my PC and copy-paste it every time you start a thread.
Of course my webcam software is up to date. I installed Skype on a brand new Windows 7 netbook. Andrea Borman.
Unless you ran a separate driver installer for your webcam, there is no way that the driver is the newest one. Especially considering you're running a new installation of Windows 7.
