start by putting tape over the cam lens! ha ha. hmmmmmm. check task manager for running processes to see if you can recognize a program that could use the cam. (mssnger apps, skype, etc.) If and only if you recognize one, and are comfortable with this, end that process, this is risky if you dont know what your doing, it can cause instability etc. next ry uninstalling any programs you dont need/use that may be using the cam, use control panel, add remove programs to do so. finally, check your startup list to see what programs are auto starting, I cant explain how to do that, Id have to stumble through it so check elsewhere here or google it.
