while browsing the web the little green light indicating the webcam who is active came on,I decided to wave at it and low and behold a message popped up saying " lol" and I replied " what? " then it said " how easy " and " bye"... how do I find the malware and what do I do about this I have children and don't want some creep watching us or even going through my computer

I have a plastic cover that just fits my web cam built into my Asus 27" monitor that I keep on it unless I am using it at the time. I went to a web site and can't remember which one now but I do remember that after the page had loaded my webcam lite came on and I did not have anything running that should have done it. After that I unplugged the webcam until I found the cover that fit just right. It is just one more thing that you can't trust with computers anymore and especially if you have kids.
