Never saw this one before. Very clever scam -- to activate your webcam so you see yourself onscreen. I actually laughed out loud when I saw it.
Anyway, I think I found a good procedure through a general Google search to off this thing, but I had a couple quick questions. BTW, this in on an older HP notebook running on Vista.
1) Does Bleeper Computer have a foolproof procedure posted to remove this? If so, could someone send it to me. You guys always have the best fixes.
2) Usually when I get something like this, I immediately go to SAFE MODE, download the latest definitions for MalwareBytes and run a full scan, which takes care of it. This time, TWICE, it shut down the MB scan early on, so I assume I need to stop some processes first, right?
Anyway, thank you in advance for your help.
