PC Tracking/Theft Recovery software

  martytoon 09:48 28 Jun 2007

There appears to be a growing amount of this type of software, which will apparently assist in the recovery of stolen computer equipment. From what I understand, it works on the basis that the PC sends a "stealth" email to a pre-determined mailbox. This will contain the IP address and through contact with the ISP the location of the equipment can be identified.I would assume this will require co-operation from the police.

Whilst I've got some sales info (see eurotracking.eu.com) I can't unearth any critical reviews of this type of software. Does anyone have any experience of using this, particularly in a commercial environment? Are there any reviews of there? Any thoughts/comments will be appreciated.
