I don't know what exactly fixed the problem but I managed to fix it. I'm using a Toshiba Satellite A215 by the way.
Here's what I did
Control Panel >> System Maintenance >> Device Manager
Go to Imaging Devices and right-click "Chicony USB 2.0 Camera" and choose "Update Driver Software"
First I clicked on "Search automatically for updated driver software" but everything was already up to date. So then I went to "Browse my Computer for Driver Software" and then to "Let Me Pick from a List". I updated the USB Video Device and rebooted but that only made it worse I think. Then I tried updating one of the "Chicony USB 2.0 Camera"'s and that did the trick. Yey. So now my webcam works.

Test it with Knoppix (e.g. a LiveCD) or Mac OS X or your old Vista HD or something to make sure the webcam has not lost its physical connection or function!
Then maybe run RegClean or uninstall the random drivers you played with, then try to load the right one first (if one exists.)
Upgrading to Mac OS X or FreeBSD or a Linux distro does not sound like a bad idea to me, especially if WinXP grieves you.

You have an application that is grabbing the webcam on bootup, so the best way is to disable this program from runnning. To do this, click Start - Run and type "msconfig" and press enter.
Click on the Startup tab and this will bring up a list of all the things you have booting. Look for webcam manager, and remove the checkmark beside it. Click Ok and then reboot. Problem should be solverd
