HI: beenalong time. Sure glad your still here. Reinstalled Win.7. Lost Labtec web camera driver. Everywhere I go they wantto install program befor letting you get the driver. Go to msn and they want you to install driver update program but their is a cost. Where can you go to just get th drivers needed. ? Thank you all hope this is in the right spot.

labtec seem to have closed down, so you cannot get a driver direct from them
all of the download sites carry a risk and you will get bundled software that you don't want
There was NEVER an official driver issued for W7 but the vista one did work on early W7 versions, but might not on a fully updated W7 with latest security updates

The price of basic webcams of a much higher spec than an old labtec one is so low that the most sensible option would be to buy a new webcam that doesn't need drivers or has them inbuilt into windows

most basic webcams nowadays cost between $5 & $10

otherwise it looks like Logitech have taken them over so try
