Re: Laptop stolen from idiot

all stolen laptop "recovery" software can be removed that i am aware of. fatal flaw in all of it is it needs to be connect to the internet to work, then have some ability to back trace an ip correctly. good luck getting a judge to issue an order to search some random house based on a dynamic ip addr...
