Finding a stolen computer

  apollogeemark 18:25 25 Jul 2004


I’ve been told that there is software that can trace any stolen computer if its used by someone on line.

is this true and does the computer have to have had the software installed on it already.

You are looking at $40 or so.

As for your second question, yes, the software has to be installed before the PC is nicked!

Some are supposed to survive a disk format...

If you have a stolen PC, you deserve to get caught.

If you are looking for your Pc that has been stolen. the thief deserves to get caught, and you deserve to get your PC back.

But in realtiy check mode..This will probably not happen.

Pity, really.
