Default Webcam

My friend when she plugs her webcam into her computer and it goes to start installing it her computer shutsdown. It only does this with one computer.

Some webcam software/drivers are not compatible with windows XP. Is she using XP? If so, get a new driver for the cam. Remove the webcam entries from device manager in safe mode and use the new drivers to install the cam.
