Another choice. It is getting very hard to find a clean download for Malwarebytes Anti Marware (free) So watch very closely for all the little hidden extras.

Yes, the light will be on. Keep in mind that software may at times use the camera, but rarely, and you'd need specific software. Most people wont be able/want to hack you just to watch you, unless you're a girl and you like to change in front of your computer for some reason. And if someone you don't know gets a glimpse of your netherlands, it won't do any actual harm, other than being uncomfortable. Better not to worry about those silly things than live in fear, I say

If you are worried about it, turn your camera away from any area that you change in, and if you like being clothless, turn it completely around when not in use. If it is built in, close the lid.

I know. If you remember enough to check the camera light, you can remember well enough to close the lid. If you want to make sure no malware or hackers get into your system, make sure you have an antivirus installed. I use Security essentials - you can use whatever. Don't install more than one, because they each conflict with others if you have multiples installed on your computer. Malwarebytes is just a scan, so it is fine to double up. you can use that scan every so often, each week, month, or as needed, but an antivirus will usually scan automatically without you noticing to keep you safe. And unviewable.

Cheers!

After looking it up, it will most definitely be on, every time. Try it out... open a camera application and watch the light
