logitech USB webcam freezing remote desktop connection

I have a Windows remote desktop connection to my home PC from my office connecting via IP.
All settings are for performance and the remote desktop works reasonable fast until I activate the Logitech Webcam. As soon as that starts the connection seems to get overloaded. The desktop icons refresh one at a time slowly and it takes minutes to make a simple click operation. After many minutes of toil I shut down the webcam process and it all speeds up again.

Is there any known issue with webcams and/or does anyone have any reasons or solutions to this issue?
