No more Intel… Only without Theft (Anti-Theft) Feature/Tool [Saturn-Matrix Truth-Reversal Games aka Agencies-Backdoors]. 😉
Computrace appears to come pre-installed on a dozen major laptop manufacturers, including Samsung, Acer, Lenovo, Hewlett-Packard, Dell, Panasonic, Toshiba, Asus, Gateway, General Dynamics, Fujitsu, and Gamatech. Since it is intended to be used as an anti-theft tool, it is whitelisted by major antivirus vendors so most users never have any idea the software is on their machines.
The agent resides in the firmware, so it doesn’t matter what operating system you are running, or what kind of security protections you have. It’s embedded right in the hardware and is difficult to remove. Most pre-installed software can be permanently removed or disabled by the user, but Computrace is designed to survive professional system cleanup and even hard disk replacement.
