    No other programme is running that uses the webcam.  I have it turned off before going into messenger.  When I go into tools.. audio video the web cam selected is the lifecam and the little webcam is beside my profile picture but where the live cam pic of me should be is a pic of the web cam with a red X.  I can see my friend and she says she can see me.  Only I can't see me.

When you start windows live messenger - there is no programme using your webcam. I.e Instant capture or any specific programmes running your webcam are turned off?

In windows live messenger - Can you see your webcam listed to use for video calls?
