Use System Restore to go back to a time before you installed the webcam and see how it runs there.

I just want to make a note here that when installing a web cam make sure you install the drivers first. Reboot the computer, then hook up the webcam when it tells you to. Same for Wireless Network Cards.

31337 is a prime number .... 1337 is not .... go figure!
