problem is your computer is not seeing the right drivers. Did you try
rerunning the installs on Cu and QuickCam? Do QC first, but before you do
delete the files:
Windows\system\ CUSeeme.ini and Quickcam.ini.
Somebody else might have another way of doing this, but if you are not
familiar with editing your control files, you are safer to try doing this
or try Bill Woodland's suggestion found at

What is a listserv?
List Info?
List Archives?
Reflector lists?
