Whenever I turn on the camera my webcam starts blinking or IOW flutterung. This happens when it is on.

By blinking I mean the screen seems like it is blinking.

The webcam is built into the pc.

I did a clean install in windows 10 after that the webcam started acting up.

I did an avira virus scan and even an online set scan and malwarebytes and everything came back negative.

I also loaded some files from my usb and scanned my usb with malwarebytes and avira and nothing came back.

I even tried the method from the link below.

The 4th method didn't work because I couldn't create a new file.

Can someone help fix my webcam and make sure I don't have a virus etc?

The only things besides antiviruses's I downloaded were apps in firefox, which were privacy badger, https everywhere, Dencentraleyes and ublock origin.

and yet you gave no information about your PC other than it is running Windows 10.
We can't help with a hardware problem if we don't know what hardware you have.
