Check and see if you have msn yahoo chat or any other chat programs running, if you do then one of them may be trying to set itself up for your web cam, if nothing else is up and running, reboot the computer then check system, devices and check on your drivers, sometimes when you shut the programs down they take out little tiny bits of code that the system needs. If this is the case just reinstall the drivers and carry on. Hope this helps.
