Just a note...but anyone can get the type of software they use up there. They aren't sitting there randomly surfing your drive for 4 hours. I'm sure
with the number of computers they violate and invade on a daily basis..they've seen it all a few times over by now.
However...the forensic data recovery and investigation programs DO take anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours. Sounds like they're REAL serious
about their checks. For that time, if that's what it was up to, it was not scanning just file names, types and meta data headers for your countless
files all over the laptop....They were file scanning contents and byte level data to find disguised porn as well.
Not bad....and I must say..*IF* I thought they had ANY right to be doing this in the first place (which I absolutely don't) I'd have to say they were
doing a very good job of it by the sounds of it.
You find a computer person like me or any of the hundreds of Comp Science majors I attend college with....from colleges all over the nation..and find
one YOU trust. Getting this junk OFF isn't hard, it's just time consuming and it DOES take considerable time spent learning where and how these little
beasties burrow their way in where they aren't supposed to be or be found. It can all be cleaned.....but I wouldn't even joke about a commercial
consumer product of any kind doing it automatically. They're designed very specifically NOT to.
