    Hey guys, you've helped me out in the past with an imaging solution(acronis), now I'm needing to find some good theft recovery and dataprotection SW/HW for my executive's Laptops. We want to be alble to recovery a stolen laptop or kill it remotely.

    I've been reading up on Computrace® BIOS Tracking Agent software but am wondering if you guys have any experience with it or any other apps.

    I've heard nothing but good things from them - definately need the BIOS enabed laptop because without it, the HD can be swapped.

    LoJack does laptop recovery now. They've been at every forensics show I've been at lately. I know some manufacturers have it built into their BIOS or even imbedded in the hardware now. Not sure about all the specifics as I'm a Mac user and all they offer for the Mac is a software application.
