Not sure if it's the right section but ok...
I was watching a part of a movie with CCCP and needed to record it. SnagIt, Camstudio, and the other freeware did nothing, and then I found something called LiteCam. It did its job perfectly except just before it went into video mode it semi-restarted explorer.exe, causing the taskbar to reload. Then I realized I suddenly don't like it, and went on to uninstall. The problem is now the whole computer has a laggy interface: if I open anything that has a window in the taskbar, the animation is somewhat delayed and jerky. Scrollboxes also have problems opening. This is definitely the work of the evil LiteCam :thumbsup:
Not only that, now if I play any .mkv file with CCCP, no video comes on and there's only audio. The CCCP staff said something about LiteCam doing something evil with my video drivers and video overlay and suggested I reinstall them.
My question is if there's any way to change the whole jerky animation problem and get rid of the problems LiteCam did? If not... how do I find information on my video drivers and reinstall them? Is the reinstallation even free?
Thank you :flowers:

Have you tried doing a System Restore?

Start> All Programs> Accessories> System Tools> System Restore. Choose one of the highlighted dates previous to the download and go from there.

Yep I tried at least 4 >_<. They all ended up as something like "Sorry, could not restore to an earlier date."

What make and model computer are we talking about here?

Is you video onboard or PCI/PCI-E?

Have you looked in the Device Manager to see if there is a problem with the video drivers?

Sorry, but what is the make and model? >_<
Also, I went and asked for help on the support forum, they said that the program possibly corrupted by video drivers. I went to the device manager (I use a ATI Radeon 64 Mobile) and scanned for changes, but there was nothing yellow or red on the manager.

If your firewall and antivirus programs have a self-protect option, you might have to uncheck those options before your system restore will work. This is definitely true for Norton products, it may well be for others too. Dont forget to re-enable self-protect after you're done.
