Hi All :D

Hope you can help me with this

The light on my webcam has come on, I have not used it in a long time and I have not started any program that would use it.

When I try to use it now (open Amcap) it just shows a blank window.

Is there anyway I can find out what is using my webcam

I have run a couple of Virus/Spy check but nothing seems to help

Please Help ;) :D

I do not think, having looked at the program that Amcap was compatible with Windows7. I have to admit to having no knowledge of the program and having had a quick look, I certainly would not use it - IF I have looked at the right one.

You may wish to look at this

although, unless you know differently, you may I think have a problem contacting the actual distributors of Amcap as against just one of the many download sources.

You forgot one of the most important pieces of information, the web cam model. I know my web cam's light can be on all the time if I set it to be. Also try updating the web cam drivers.
