Hello soupbox.

As a test, can you disable the webcam via device manager, and see if it continues to crash, or stops?

Whatever may the result be, let us know.

So it is the webcam for sure. If the Cam uses any third party driver, update it. If it uses the generic driver, plan to use a program monitoring the cam. There are a few good free programs available.
