I seem to be having an issue with a virus in relation to what it is and how to remove it. Symptoms include:

Random times of another user (no one i know of) accessing my pc remotely and opening a browser attempting to direct my browser to some malicious site and also accessing my webcam in the process.

Sounds like a common RAT (remote access trojan). It could be a different type of malware, but that sounds closer to what it is. I'd run MBAM and Hitman Pro to see if they find anything. Not a bad idea to run a couple free AV scans either. Probably run a few of the free scans (different from a free AV) from Bitdefender, Panda, and Avira. If nothing turns up at all, I'd be surprised.
