How do I access my webcam

I have a Toshiba Satellite P205D-S7454 with built in webcam. About 2 weeks ago it got a virus and I had to take it in to get it removed. They backed up everything on my laptop then erased everything including the virus. It is now basically a new computer back on default settings. The problem I have now is that I can't access my webcam. There used to be a webcam bar on the side of the screen but now it is gone. I have searched in the start menu and control panel and can't find it. Any help would be appreciated

Toshiba and utilities are not options when I go to start/all programs

Then it sounds like whoever removed that virus for you removed lots of other stuff.

Thanks! I just downloaded it and 'Camera Assisstant Software' is now in start/programs but when I click on it nothing happens

They apparently did not restore the hard disk to its original out-of-the-box contents using Toshiba recovery media. Time to do that.

 

Do you have the recovery discs that came with that machine? If not, you'll need to order them.
