    Hello,LookinAround and all the other members of the Techspot forums.
    I hope it's not too soon to be asking for help(again).Assuming it is not I have another problem ,this time with an Acer 5920g laptop that runs win 7 ultimate 64 bit.The problem is specifically with its built-in webcam.Having learned from our previous session I searched the forum and followed instructions and finally downloaded a zip file from driverguide.com that is labeled 82801.zip.So far everything was o.k,but unzipping and opening the folder I found inside many entries and no info as to which one to choose.Any help would ,as always, be really appreciated.Thanks in advance.

    I'm sorry.It seems my post wasn't clear.It's not that I need help on how to install an .inf file but on how to choose from the files that are in the 82801 folder.As you can see there are many and all are pre windows 7.

    Ahhhhh...

    Suggestion for best practice: When looking for drivers, always start by going to the support site provided by the vendor of your computer or motherboard.

    If you download the driver from the Acer site for your model, you'll see the driver provides a Setup.exe file to run
