I banned the webcam service in registry, can anybody hack my webcam and watch what I am doing before my laptop?

That sounds so wrong...

Absolutely - Just CLICK HERE

Obviously that link is fail - But it would be quite easy to create a backdoor that would allow me to... The only trick is getting you to activate it without your knowledge - Much easier than you might think...

Nothing is safe (or for sure) on these damn things.... ;)

Solid plan to make sure nobody spies on you through a non removable webcam: Non-translucent tape or a sticky note.
OR
Uninstall the drivers if you don't use it.

Always use your computer in the dark! They can't see you in the dark.. that or you know, sticky tape :)
