LaptopLock. Windows freeware (at the moment!) which you install and configure on your hard disk to protect your notebook computer if it’s stolen. Once the machine is connected to the Internet it will connect to a central server and then either delete files, encrypt them, execute a program or go ‘yah boo sucks’ to the thief. Or something.
How does The LaptopLock work? If the computer is stolen, login into your account, mark the computer status as stolen. As soon as that machine connects to the Internet, the actions you set during setup will execute. The LaptopLock will also try to find out as much as possible about the connection to help in recovery of the machine. THE LAPTOPLOCK DOES NOT MONITOR OR RECORD USER ACTIONS. THE LAPTOPLOCK DOES NOT ALLOW ANYONE ACCESS TO YOUR COMPUTER OR DATA. THE LAPTOPLOCK CAN ONLY EXECUTE ACTIONS THE USER HAS PRE-PROGRAMMED IT WITH.
