Virus free shareware Full description

Advatrack monitors the location of your computer on the Internet so it can be found when it is lost or stolen.
After specified time period passed Advatrack agent looks for an Internet connection and, when it finds one, it makes a short connection to our server, which detects location of the computer and saves it.
You can specify period of time between connections during setup(recommended daily).
Monitoring report is available online.
This report contains information where and when the computer was connected to the Internet so you can detect unauthorized use of the computer too. Also it contains volume serial number and all available information about last known Internet connection.
This process does not interfere with any PC work and can't be detected by regular means.
You can access your online report from any computer or that report can be emailed to you.
Advatrack has been tested against all known computer viruses.

HD formatting.


In case the program's files are deleted Advatrack will continue to function and report the location of the computer, once it is connected to the Internet or to the phone jack. Additionally, in many cases Advatrack will survive hard disk formatting. Of course there is no 100% guarantee - it depends how the files were deleted or how HD formatting was performed. We are obviously very reluctant to provide technical details here, simply because we do not want to give any clue on how to remove Advatrack from a stolen computer.

Using "calling back" feature.

When the computer is not connected to the Internet for 5 days (whether it is stolen or not) and is unable to report it's location it will start looking for a phone line connection. After finding any phone line connection - it will silently dial phone number(s) you specified during installation of AP. We do recommend that you use more than 1 phone number (E.g. work and home phone numbers).
If your phone number is for example 415-444-4444 than you can enter following list of phone numbers: "444-4444,415-444-4444,1-415-444-4444". One of these calls will go through depending from which location(local, interstate or international) the call is made and two other calls will not.
When you receive such a call you will hear a ticking sound (like digit 8 is pressed on the phone). Call Display can be used to detect phone number from where the call was made. If phone number is unlisted, private or you are unable to detect it - call police immediately after receiving this call and they will detect that number.
(Police are able to detect number of last caller. Also phone service providers can give you an option to return call to last caller.)

How to uninstall Advatrack.

To uninstall the program, access Advatrack settings, and click on "Uninstall" button.

This is a shareware. It means that you can download it now and use free during the evaluation. After that, you should either register it if you found it useful, or delete the program from your computers.

What to do if computer is lost or stolen

First, inform the police or your security company of loss or theft. Then click on the red button below (or on our homepage) and fill in Lost computer report form.

The emergency monitoring will be activated. When the location of the computer is detected we will forward this information to local police or your security company (you specify in that form) so that they can obtain a warrant to go in and recover computer. Read more...

Different IP address for your computer

Keep in mind that every time a connection to the Internet is made, new IP address could be assigned to your computer. However this information (IP address, caller phone number and time of connection) is recorded to the report. So, to trace user of your computer, you have to provide both: IP address and connection time (this information can be found in report).

Autoinstallation

Autoinstallation feature allows you to install the program on many computers automatically. To use this feature you should unzip setup files to a diskette and create on this diskette an additional file "autoinst.txt". This file must contain the list of names and e-mails that will be used during installation.
E.g.
name1 email@server.com
name2 email@server.com
name3 email@server.com

Than you just insert diskette, click on SETUP_AN.EXE and program will be installed with name/email from first line and that first line will be deleted from file "autoinst.txt". So when you insert the diskette in to second computer - it will install the program with next name/email.
