That's not a bad picture actually, it's not as grainy as I thought it was going to be. That's better than most cheap camcorders you can get, I must say.
Bear in mind that's a 1280x1024 picture and very few people will be seeing it at 1280x1024 unless they have a ridiculously huge monitor in the first place.
Most people will only be seeing it as a small picture probably less than half of the size of that, and as the resolution goes down so the quality looks better.

Quite a lot of webcams and cheaper digital cameras generate "grainy" looking images under artificial light. So there probably isn't a lot you can do about it unless you use it exclusively outside.

On the basis you'll never use that picture anywhere at 1280x1024 anyway, I really would not worry about it. It will be shrunk. What the eye don't see the photographer gets away with.
