Hiring the wrong computer repair guy or technician can not only be incredibly frustrating and expensive, but you could end up losing ALL of your irreplaceable files, photos, music, e-mails, and other important documents or a technician, stealing a computer data from your hard drive.......!!!! The predictable, though unfortunate truth is that not all computer technicians are upstanding citizens.

An investigation found low technical steal passwords, an overload of work and private metals by means of images of the laptop with the owner of a bikini.

Researchers from a new laptop with a cable connection with hidden cameras and spy software from operating without the knowledge engineers.

The laptop is not easy to recognize: a memory chip that stopped the computer.For running, the chip simply appeared to be back in position.

Researchers from the Sky News team has a six repair shops in London. The most serious is portable revival in Hammersmith, West London.

Shortly after the adoption of the actual debt, the engineer called to say that the team with a new motherboard, costs £ 130. During the course of the investigation, other techniques have been caught trying to reach customers online bank accounts and stolen passwords

Smile, the technician loads the images on a memory of the device is kept around his neck - the software is full of similar pictures in a folder as' Mamma jamma "- street slang for women with large breasts.

Once the technician has discovered this information, open a web browser on the laptop and tried to bank five minutes - not because the information was false.

Portable recovery refused to comment on the investigation.

An engineer in Digitech in Putney, south-west of London, the researcher also the photos on holiday - after looking over your shoulder.

An employee at the store said: "We saw the pictures to see if the memory is fully functional."

Richard Webb, marketing spokesperson for the Institute on the website of Commerce, said: It is a major breach of trust. If you are skilled in computers that are not at hand in the computer to be repaired. They know that. "

As far as my "advice" is to keep sensitive files on an external HDD.. Its going these days..!..., that way you don't have to take it in with the PC. Or if it's at home, then just disconnect it.

And make sure cleared your internet browser (firefox, IE, Opera etc ) cookies. Every web browser stores web pages, images, cookies, and other downloaded content on the computer. This is called the browser's cache. Clearing it before sent your computer to technician, Its can protect your privacy.:Intechclan
