Not sure which newsgroup to post this :
I intend to install a webcam on my laptop in order to keep in touch with my sister far away.
What do I need to know ? Do I have to activate another program i.e. messenger ?
When I installed my WLM, I did not install Messenger and other related programs.
I need to know enough to tell my sister who knows even less.
Thank you.

You can always use Skype. It's a freebie. I've used it to connect to my brother in NC, my step-kids in NH and MA, and my nephew in TX. Works pretty well.
