If you are trying to use live messenger 8 you may have to use the set up utility. Open Messenger, show menu, tools, audio and video set up. Checks webcam, mic and speakers. If it says webcam is being used by another application, check the taskbar. If there is a webcam icon there, right click and close. Hope this helps.
