I have a laptop that I bought off of ebay. I did not restart it or anything, but I feel as if somebody is in control of my webcam. Every once in a while I'll just be online going and checking emails and the light to my webcam will light up! I have been researching a lot people say someone may be in control of it so I've become really scared and have put a piece of tape over it just to make sure they cannot see me if there is someone watching me. I also have heard that there might be a certain key on the keyboard that makes it do that. I am not certain if my laptop has a certain key to turn the webcam on, but information back as soon as possible will be highly appreciated. (The light turns on for maybe a second or two and then goes right off, but it does it randomly like every 5 minutes maybe. Should I be concerned or is it just a key I'm frequently pressing that is making it do this.)
