I have never tried this but there are several positive comments concerning software called Seashore.

The green light is on when you activate it by opening either Photobooth or Quicktime. Goto Applications > Utilities > Activity Monitor and see whether any of the above mentioned Apps. are currently running. You can quit then from there.

GIMP is a good alternative for Paint (Even better). For that you need X11User.pkg(Hidden on your installation disk). Read the instructions here

I was worried i'd downloaded something dodgy and was being spied on!!!
