Default Webcam freezes whenever I try and use it?

Hey guys, got a slight problem here. When I plug my webcam in its fine to start with and then when say on MSN messenger or whatever I try and use my webcam my whole MSN messenger program freezes? Note that its only the msn program that freezes, everything else is fine?

Thanks v much. Oh and I have the latest drivers.

Edit: I used some test your webcam program online and my internet browser froze, seems like the only program that freezes is the program that is being used with the cam.

what operating system are you running and what camera do you have?
ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 :: INTEL i7 920 @3.4 :: XFX GTX260 :: 6gb Corsair 1600 :: Corsair 750TX :: TRUE 120 :: Samsung T240 24" :: Windows 7 X64
