Logitech QuickCam 9000 - please help - freezes puter in sky

I have a Gateway 2.13 ghz computer, windows vista, and a new logitech quickcam 9000 webcam.
This is my 4th webcam (others were cheaper and no good). I have spent all week trying to get this to work in any im.
I've tried 4. I like Skype best due to video and audio, but within a few seconds of starting video call, the video of myself freezes. And then the only way to restart my computer is by unplugging it.
Sightspeed - no sound, despite doing everything they say.
Yahoo - the logitech mic won't show up as an option
AOL - horrible image and sound
Does anyone know of a good im that will work with the 9000? Is there a way around the freezing issue with skype?
I'm actually thinking of returning the webcam at this point. A week is long enough to try to get the darned thing to work. (btw, it is functional in quick cam - but won't work in any im).
So if I return it, can anyone recommend a good ($100.00 or less) webcam with good image and sound?
Please help. This webcam experience is draining me!
