    I rebooted my computer for the first time in a couple weeks last night, and upon going to my main hard drive directory, I found a bunch of aliases that weren't there before, such as Desktop, My documents, my pictures, my music, etc..

    Why are these here? Because I for sure did not make them.
    Also, a couple days ago, about half an hour after quitting Facetime, my iChat camera light came on for a couple seconds without me even touching the computer.

    Is someone controlling my computer??:confused:

    Did you set up Windows via Boot Camp with a FAT32 formatted partition? No clue about why the iSight camera would turn on randomly like that. For most applications that can use the iSight, with the exception of Photo Booth, the application must ask for you to accept/approve accessing the iSight, unless Undercover or another piece of tracking software is enabled.
