Publisher description for PAL PC Tracker Lite

PAL PC Tracker Lite program icon

PAL PC Tracker is a computer tracking and theft recovery software system. PC Tracker allows the user to do their own monitoring and works with both Laptops and Desktop computers. Every time you boot your computer and have an Internet connection, PC Tracker sends a stealth e-mail message containing its exact location to a pre-determined e-mail address set by the customer. Additionally, it will post a second message on to our servers containing the exact location for extra protection in the case you are unable to check your email. PAL PC Tracker runs hidden in your system and is password protected. In the event the computer is stolen, the customer must make a report with the local police and then notify the PC Tracker support team, which will provide full tracking and recovery support. When the stolen computer goes online it will send a stealth message to our server and the pre-determined e-mail address containing its location. Once this information is received, recovery agents at PC Tracker will work with our customer and the investigating law enforcement agency to recover the stolen property. · Sends you the location of your PC automatically on start-up · Protect your computer automatically · Run hidden in your system · Password protected options restricts configuration by an unauthorised user

We had high hopes for this product, and purchased the $30 version. That version could not be installed. Installation required us to enter a password that PAL failed to send us, and PAL ignored our email requests. Good job to PayPal for processing the refund. Next we got the Lite (free) version. It installed fine. The only password needed was one you could set yourself. I could find no documentation to compare the paid and unpaid versions, but my guess if your laptop actually gets stolen, then you need to pay them for assistance at that point, if you were using the free (Lite) version. We're giving the Lite version a negative review because it is next to useless. If your computer is behind a router, it fails to send the correct IP address. It ought to send the ISP-supplied IP, but instead sends the router's IP (e.g., It'd be hard enough to get an ISP to trace an IP address for you, but impossible to track down a PC at 192.168.*.*. We came up with our own free solution -- one unlikely to be detected.

Very disappointed with this product. Purchased it, wanted to test it, only sends IP on the machine, not of the ISP or any traceroute info needed to phsyically locate a stolen computer. Contacted Chris(the owner of PCTracker) and he failed to prove that it would work. Finally refunded my money after hassling him. Don't bother....
