    Mine says "toshiba webcam HD"....when I checked the drivers or try to update drivers it says drivers are up to date.odd really cos they are dated 2006?...this is a new latest laptop...Toshiba website has nothing for Windows 10. Even if I uninstall the device and reboot laptop same drivers are installed..

    Hello!

    The app just enables the webcam to see it is working and take some photos. You don't need it to operate the webcam. Load Skype or whichever software you want to use the webcam in and check if it is enabled automatically. In Skype, after you sign in, go to settings, video settings and you can confirm it is working by watching the picture in the live window. If you want to take photos from the webcam, you can find third-party utilities, otherwise you shouldn't need the webcam application.

    What is the Unknown device, in your screenshot, it has a problem marker on it.
    And the unsigned driver edevmonsys, i believe is part of Eset AV, but as to why its there is another question,
    do you have any restriction rules for the webcam.
