I'm just looking at a bug the size of a harvest mite that I thought was on the surface of the screen but is on the inside surface walking about... Has anyone else had this?

You need to put in place a correct screen saver so it can find it's way out.

Answer

That is why computer bugs are called 'bugs'. The term originated when Grace Hopper, an early computer pioneer, described the cause of a problem with an electro-mechanical computer that was malfunctioning.

A small moth had become trapped in a relay, causing it to fail. After that, anything which resulted in a software or hardware glitch was referred to as a bug.
