Many Webcams Have Such Software Included

Use it!.... and more importantly, IF you are the owner/administrator of the computer, limit what others can do on it.. If you're not the owner/administrator of the computer, speak of your concerns to the other users and understand why they're using the computer in such a manner..

Communication usually works between family members and if it doesn't, there are deeper problems here than how a webcam is used...

Hope this helps.

i was not able to find it, the program is logitech quikcam. the os is windows xp. the application in concern is yahoo messenger.

ps i really appreciate the personal advice, and i've already traveled down that road. we are well past the point of reconcilliation, and i now am just worried about protecting myself.

Sad to read, but

if you are the owner of the computer, and things are that bad, don't let her use it. (Password protect it, give her a day to remove her files, then disable her account.)
If you are not (ie: she is) you should remove any files of yours from it, secure delete any you don't want shared, and delete your user profile, I guess.
Never been through anything like this.
