laptop security

  Newuser2 12:30 02 Nov 2003

In a recent PCAdvisor I saw a utility/programme that could be installed onto a laptop. It would help track the laptop if it was stolen by transmitting details every time the laptop was connected to the internet. It would as far as I can remmember survive a reformat of the hard drive. Trouble is I cannot find the referance to it in my pile of PCAdvisors.
Can anyone point me in the right direction.

I don't know about the Software tracking and command centre but "Every time you boot your computer and have an Internet connection, PC PhoneHome? sends a stealth e-mail message containing its exact location to a pre-determined e-mail address set by the user" so isn't limited to the USA, and I've got a copy that was given away with PCFormat (I wanted the copy of PSP5). StealthSignal describes itself as "Global", but I'm sure they will confirm any limitations if you want to check [email protected]
