I got a virus that was showing a fake "FBI warning". The webcam was actually working prior to the virus infection. I took my laptop to service support to get the things clean up and now I can't access my webcam. Any ideas?

In most cases the webcam settings or drivers get messed up by various reasons. You can solve these issues by a simple reinstallation of the drivers for your webcam. Depending on your laptop/camera model, please visit the website of the official developer of the device you are using and download the correcsponding drivers.
