    OK, I think this is going to far.
    I installed a webcam for net meetings. After I got it tested, I took a sip of water and it went down the wrong pipe and I started coughing.
    The anti-virus then popped up and said I hadn't run an antivirus scan in 30-some days, would I like to run one now?
    Funny coincidence or is it?

    I was just watching a youtube a few days ago about a woman who had worked for Cambridge Analytica - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Facebook–Cambridge_Analytica_data_scandal who was saying that many of the applications we install on our computers and smart phones include TOS clauses that let them turn the camera on and record you when-ever they want. . . All so they can help you with relevant advertising of course. . .

    Pretty sure that's illegal in the EU. But that is also why I tape off the cameras on laptops and phones. Just to be sure.
