    First, sorry about the empty post.

    Here is my suspicion, I run Windowes ME. I just installed a webcam on my
    PC. I went to the Control Panel then to Sounds and Multimedia, then I
    clicked on the Devices tab to look at the properties of the USB WebCam.
    While there I noticed some other hardware listed that is totally unfamilar to
    me, I did not install it and I don't think it was there before. Examples
    are: PIONEER laser disc device, VISCA VCR device. His job has supplied him
    with this new "Smart Phone, Rasbeery instrument which he uses to connect to
    the internet and I think he can connect to his home PC with it. Now, since
    my house is wired for a network and all 4 PC in the house are networked, is
    there anyway he could have set things up to SPY on me??? Strange things
    have been happening lately and since I just noticed these new devices and
    drivers on MY PV I am getting a little paranoid. (He is a control freak.)
    Does anyone know if in todays world of technology my suspicion is possible
    and if so any tips on how I can confirm that he is doing this?

    I hope I don't sound like a paranoid idiot!

    Thanks for any comments!!

  2. If you wear an aluminium foil hat and Groucho glasses I think that most
    of your problems will be solved.

  3. Turn all lights off and be very, very silent.
    This way any device won't be able to spy on you.
    It might be easier to turn all PCs off anyways...

  4. Those are legacy "devices" that are installed on everything from win95
    and later, even if they are not present as physical real-world devices
    they'll still be listed. It's actually a microsoft conspiracy rather
    than your husbands (who I don't work for BTW !)


    Sorry to spoil the party guys ;-)
    I've got a better idea - why not read up the background on how these
    network things work, and then get one over on him and spy on the
    bastard yourself ;-))

    Mike's right though, keep on wearing the tinfoil headpiece in case of
    radiation sent by the aliens. Oh, and if you start to hear voices be
    sure to post back !

    Cheers - Neil
