Thank you Ashley & Stuart. I am sure that I will crack the issue with your given info. Much appreciated. Mind you, are there any other means of talking with family/friends using a built in webcam other than using Skype. A whole new area for me!
A good tip: When you connect with someone in Skype and they say they can't see you, Right click on the video screen and from the pull down menu click on "Start my Video".

There are but Skype is the best, but don't forget you can only use it if you have money in your account even when phoning Skype to Skype which doesn't cost anything but you still have to have funds there (see the Skype home page for transferring funds to your account).
