First, have you tried restarting the computer? If that doesn't fix it check the task bar in the bottom right to see if the webcam software is running down there, then use ctrl-alt-delete to check the task manager to see if any webcam software is running there. Only one program is able to use the webcam at a time so you just have to find what other program is using it.

Try disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall
the CD or Downloaded software program. When the program asks you
to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud
my computer is an HP Pavilion slimline s33001 The cam is Labtec i cant remember the # but of the four its the smallest slimmest dark one.It wont fit in either computer we own.the usb
is so odd yet our older Labtec cam is fine on both pcs.
Ok, take a breath... What has happened, is although you uninstalled the Logitech software, the folders still exist (as with any program uninstallation).
Unless you're comfortable with poking around your C drive, then download and run a program called "ccleaner" at www.ccleaner.com, which in a normal scenerio will remove redidual files left behind by an uninstall.
Once you have installed ccleaner, choose "tools" and use their uninstaller to remove the logitech software (if it shows on the program list).Even if it doesnt show, still run the "cleaner" function", as there will always be temp files lurking around that could mess up an installation.
Then, go to Logitech's site and get the latest software for your camera model.
Be sure to NOT plug the camera in until it tells you to do so!! THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT!!!
You may have to go into Skype's video configuration utility to setup the cam, but I think you can take it from there. Good luck!
