I've connected up a Trust Primo 17405 webcam and installed Skype. Webcam and skype both seemed to work before downloading drivers for webcam (because i wanted some of the extra features like face movement tracking. Only seems to cause BSOD when clicking on Skype tools- options- video settings- CRASH! I'm using Windows7 Home and Firefox.

Managed to glean the following from error reporting:

I'd go for a system restore and manage without the extra functions.
