Major issue with a virus..as you know there is a "White screen Virus" running rampant..screen gets frozen, solid white, fbi warning,,this looks authentic to those who do not know better, but the really scary part is the virus activated my laptop webcam and took my PICTURE! The laptop was about 2 feet away from me on the coffee table..when the screen popped up with the FBI warning, in the corner was my picture,,i was wearing the same clothes, etc..how could this happen?? This freaks me out..I managed to do do a system restore after fussing for an hour or so, and lots of research, I have control of the computer again, but how did they get my picture, and activate the webcam?? Help on this please!! Thanks so much!!

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
