    as Pavan said if we format the machine then the software cannot help us… I guess there should be some hardware for the ethernet card which will help us to find stolen Laptops..

    Pavan, TechnoSamrat and abhishek: you can always prevent the re-formatting of your drive by setting a system passwd in the bios.
    Press the del key or f12 or whatever is displayed on screen while your pc is booting to enter those settings.
