    Access to webcam

    My computer guy recently sold me ESET software, saying it's the best security software available. I have no reason to doubt this. Since starting this, ESET sends messages daily or more frequently that some company (sometimes Microsoft, sometimes others I've never heard of) after they attempt to enter my webcam. My computer guy says no problem. Give them access. But why would any company want to have access to my webcam? Sounds fishy. I've never been asked about this type of thing before. Maybe MacAfee (my previous security software) wasn't catching these attempts. Or maybe it just doesn't matter and I am not in any danger. Can someone provide me with some definition on companies getting access to my webcam? Is someone trying to peep at me as I work? Nerve-wracking. Thanks,
