That is a URL to an advertisement about buying homes not an error message.

I would hazard a guess that you have picked up a Male Ware Infection so update your Male Ware Scanners if you have them and forget the Beta MS one as it doesn't pickup anything at all and go with something like Spy Bot S&amp or AD Aware available from

http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/

http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/index.html

Install these on your system if you do not already have them and Update as required then boot into Safe Mode and run Male Ware/Spy Ware Scans as well as your AV Scanner. If one of the Male Ware or Spy Ware scanners picks up a problem or several remove them and run the scanner again until you get a clean pass through or you find something that can not be removed and then try to other Spy Ware Scanner and run the program remove any infections that it picks up and then run it again till you get a clean scan and then reboot into normal mode and try your Web Cam Again you may have to change the device to actually get it to work but it should work after the system is cleaned up.

If it doesn't you'll have to reinstall the software & Drivers for the Web Cam to get it working correctly but first you are going to have to remove the infections that you have picked up.
