This might be my paranoid side talking but i'd get off the net right now, go to another computer and download any spyware software like Ad Aware or Spybot to make sure there isn't someone looking at you. If it's being used by Some Other Application then i'd consider the worse and work my way back.

That aside, if nothing was found, simply try uninstalling the camera and reinstalling using the CD that came with your laptop or go online and reinstall the drivers.

Seriously, get off the net.
