And it's like half of my shirt, probably taken as I was typing a letter for a future job (more on that latter), so I know it's yesterday, in a 45-60 minuite range. Pretty sure the Webcam got hacked.

So, beside the usual FORMAT ALL THINGS, is there cue you guys can give me, as I'll tackle it tonight after work. I have AVG Free (any input on that one? I was thinking of changing for Avast or MSE) and Malwarebyte and Spybot to root out shit, and it usually does the work.

Any cue as to what to do or use, and in what order?
First disconnect your webcam. SEcond, run spybot software. Third do a google search in regards to the programs you downloaded to see if this is a known issue and if there is an easy fix. Fourth, never download free video conversion software. Fifth, run a deep clean via your anti virus.

If that doesn't fix it, you're gonna have to format.

Nice. There's like 3 versions of it. Antivirus, Internet Security and Total Security. Any version you'd suggest?

Hopefully it's an easy fix. I was just reading an article on Ars about people who hijack people's webcams and shit. Not cool.

I have Internet Security. And when you purchase I believe you will get 3 licenses. I gave on to Ceej, one to Lesley and myself. Works well. Haven't had any issues since I've had it.

That's the one I was aiming for. I was looking for something not too expensive, ans it seems to fit the bill.

Quick quetion: is it better to buy online or buy the box? Cause I know there's the 1 to 3 years deal, + 1, 3 or 5 users. But when you get the download, it says one activation. IF I buy, install, and then catch some bad shit that forces me to format, is this activation nul or is it like Steam and I can just re-download?

I believe it's all tied to a key and not an installation. So in theory if you have to format you should be able to re-download it and enter the key. But I would contact them to ask to be sure. I never bought the box and never had any issues.
