in 'windows live' and 'skype' and in 'splitcam' the cirrus logic usb-dvr2 is always on the list. splitcam ( a program i use to share the webcam) tries to resolve this at boot time and gives an error message. I don't have any use for this driver or wdm (whatever that is?) and do not want it to load. i tried some regedit suggestion from other sites which did not help. sove of the suggestions point to 'pinacle pctv' which i used for a while but no longer have a use for.

thank you

AT YOUR OWN RISK, NO WARRANTY IMPLIED, I DON'T TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THIS!!!

I'd suggest searching your registry for the driver and the pinnacle pctv strings. Once you find them, back the keys up and then delete them.

WARNING!!! Editing the registry can have disastrous consequences. Ensure that you back up your registry - and that you know how to restore it if you're not able to boot into Windows.

usasma, how does one restore the registry if you're not able to boot into Windows? I've always wondered about that...

-You can run System Restore to restore it in Safe Mode.
-You can manually replace parts of it in Safe Mode.
-You can use a PE disk to copy the backup/part of a restore point over the original in a PE environment. (did work the one time that I tried it)
-You can use Recovery Console to copy a restore point's contents over the original. (didn't work the one time that I tried it)
-Make an image of the hard drive, and restore it to restore you to the point where you were prior to the registry crash (my preferred method)
-and I'm sure that there's other solutions available.

The point here is that it's not just a simple copy/paste operation - so it's advisable to study up on how to do it (and print the instructions). That way, should you "tank" the registry - you are able to recover from it with minimal difficulty.

The reason I brought it up is because the first time that I tried to do this, I didn't remember that parts of the registry are locked while you're in Windows - so you can't replace it! Nor did I have a copy/replace on reboot utility that "might" have worked. So I was stuck with starting over from scratch - a real PITA!
