Windows XP spontaneously exits (VBox reports 'aborted') when starting webcam

Hey. So I've had this problem both through using Tinychat, in a web browser, and in Windows Live Messenger, under a VM of Windows XP. I take the action to display my webcam and the window containing my virtual OS just vanishes with no warning. Virtualbox reports it as Aborted. I assume no log is generated automatically, since there's no real apparent crash to speak of. I use this regularly to communicate with a close friend as there's no existing Linux client that supports Microsoft's current video call implementation, in Windows Live. Any assistance would be appreciated.

If there's some automatically generated log, or debugging I can assist with in pinpointing the issue, let me know.
