Do you use WinXP? If so, it has some basic wizards built-in. Just go to My Computer and your webcam should appear there. Open it up and the wizard will run. What all do you want to do with your webcam anyway? A program I use for video capture is Capture Studio Professional. It has a pretty ugly interface, but it gives you quite a few options and you can compress the video as it records. It is free and that's why I use it. I can't remember the web address but just do a search and you'll find it. Otherwise, I haven't tried any software that has to be purchased, so you're on your own there.
