I have and my father also has a Logitech Quickcam Pro 9000. When we're on a Skype Video call the image regularly freezes, so I googled this issue and loads of people were saying the Logitech Quickcam Pro 9000 driver is rubbish and is the cause of the problem. So I rolled it back to the standard USB Video Device driver that windows provides and guess what, it works absolutely perfectly.
So I was thinking that's the problem resolved, but everytime I restart windows Logitech tries to install the drivers again, even though I ticked the box to delete the Logitech drivers from the operating system previously. I went into add remove programs, and could find no app causing this. So I had to delete absolutely everything that had Logitech in it from the operating system, and even search with the word "Logi" to make sure I got absoluitely everything. But the damm thing keeps poping up again and again and installing the logitech driver which again, brings the problem back.
I tell you, I am tired of these webcams now, and I am almost about to buy two new webcams, and they will NOT BE LOGITECH. Anyone got any ideas?

I don't know why it tries to install drivers every time you boot. Have you eliminated all the software that comes with the camera? All those tricky "effects" things?
I have the same camera, I think – thanks to Logitech's wonky naming system, there are various 9000s out there. I do not allow Logitech to install any of the rubbish it provides with the camera. I did that once and the result was a disaster.
All that I have is the "Logitech webcam driver".
This is not something that you will see in all the Quickcam junk. I got the file some time ago, so can't remember the exact details. But it amounts to using software and drivers that are intended for the business market, where they do not welcome fripperies.
This might help:
Like I said, I went through this aggro some time ago. And my memory may be playing tricks. But you don't have much to lose. Just create a Windows Restore Point before messing around.
