QHY5-III 224 Color CMOS - Very frustratng

The item arrived with a card listing several Gapanese web sites to go to so that drivers could be downloaded. All the sites were listed as "unsafe" by Windows, but I pressed ahead anyway. The result was a mass of software downloaded to my PC in obscure directories - which would not "Uninstall". The camera is still inoperable.
