    Do the following for each of the following driver names:




    1) Create a Restore Point using System Restore
    2) Create a Repair disc by going to Start...All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair Disc
    3) Test the System Repair disc to make sure that you can get to the System Restore entry when you boot from the disk (you may also want to try actually using System Restore to make sure that it works)
    4) Download this free program (Autoruns for Windows) and use it to disable any instances of LVUSBS64.sys that are starting (or any other Logitech Camera entries) (DO NOT DELETE - only disabled by removing the checkmark in the left hand column)
    5) Check in Device Manager (to include showing hidden devices from the View menu item) and ensure that any instances of LVUSBS64.sys (or any other Logitech Camera entries) are "Uninstalled" (DO NOT DISABLE THESE).
    6) Check in the Services applet (services.msc) to be sure any instances of LVUSBS64.sys or any other Logitech Camera entries are disabled.
    7) Go to C:\Windows\System32\drivers and rename the LVUSBS64.sys driver to LVUSBS64.BAD

    In the event that the system doesn't boot:

    1) Boot from the System Repair disc and use the Command Prompt option to rename LVUSBS64.BAD to LVUSBS64.sys
    2) Boot from the System Repair disc and use the System Restore option to restore the system to a point before the changes were made.

    Good luck!

    I just wiped my ssd using killdisk and did a clean install of windows 8 (I think it was the smartest thing to do at this point).
    I already went through the windows update process.
    Where can I check for other (possibly) outdated drivers?
    Thank you for your time

    or you can use the data collection app at the top of the forums, and look at the DriverList.txt file.

    Then use the DRT (Driver Reference Table) to see what program/device they belong to: Driver Reference Table (DRT)
