This is a weird & wonderful question, one that I have tried to answer for myself but got nowhere fast. Some time ago I had the unfortunate experience of having my laptop hacked into without my knowledge or permission. I know how it was done, and managed to put an end to it, but just this nags me:VLC was downloaded also without my permission (along with other programs). When I opened it up (as an Administrator) I saw a round button at the bottom of the screen, with the word 'Mirror' underneath. I clicked on the button and I could see myself as if a camera was pointing at me. My laptop does not have a camera. I could clearly see my reflection, as if in a mirror. A few days later my laptop (all on its lonesome, or should I say with the aid of a program not installed by me) deleted all strange files & programs, resetting itself back to something like it was before it was hijacked. Has anyone heard of the Mirror button used in the way I've described it? I am a tech so I do have some experience in computer software, but this has me beat! Thanks in advance.
