web cam problem

I've recently brought an eyetoy camera to use on Skype. The camera works fine on Windows Live messenger, but when I try to use it on Skype it states "can't start camera and to close the application using the camera. Even if I close Live messenger and open Skype it still asks the same question.

Can I delete Windows Live Messenger from my PC?

I do use Windows Live Mail for sending Emails.

I'm using windows XP home
