On Jan 5th (today) my house has been robbed, luckily the only thing (we know so far) that has been taken was a laptop.
I'd like to track that laptop down.

I am not sure if it is possible ,but I'd like to know if you or the Mods/Other Admins are able to give me a info that tells what kind of computer I've entered your website with.

I used that laptop using the same internet I am using now.

All help is appreciated.

Thank You

We cannot nor any forum type site would be able to tell you that. That information is not retrievable by our forum service. The only information we have is what you used to register with, a user name and email to send a validation link to. Unless you have LoJack for Laptops or similar call home when online service. Your laptop is untraceable if it goes online.

Whilst I am not in any way part of the Management Team here, I do feel sorry for you and as a Community Service I suggest the following to all Members in regard to this disturbing Trend nowadays.

Dowload a Program like Belarc, link below. It gives a Fingerprint on any Machine it is used on. Including ALL Details.


Once used, take a copy of all the details and store the copy right away from the Machine, then delete the program from the Machine.

If that Machine is then stolen, you have a nice fingerprint of it for the Police.

Be Warned! If you have been to bad Sites that shows up too! :thumbsup:
