Just a wild guess, sort of...

Start/Settings/Control Panel/Multimedia/Advanced/Video Capture
Devices/cudoodle/"Don't use this device" should disable the cudoodle
driver. With the Cornell version, you might have to add
"msvideo=3DsomeHauppaugeDriver.drv" to the [drivers] section of your
system.ini file. Run Regedit and do a search for "msvideo" and you should
see a section there for the Hauppauge card. Get the name of the actual
driver file from there to put on the "msvideo=3D" line.
