Q: How common is it that random people will infect your computer with software to monitor your actual screen? I know spyware/malware is ubiquitous, but what about ones that monitor your exact screen?

    Very rare, if for no other reason than what you’re doing with your computer isn’t inherently interesting or valuable to a random person. Why would they want to sit there for hours watching you scroll through facebook statuses!

    Keep your anti-virus software up to date, I suggest Microsoft Security Essentials.
