Abstract—The Study of computer security and certain aspects of cyber crime fascinated the detailed study of the present day most commonly encountered cyber crime like Laptop theft. In this paper, we present a novel methodology to encounter the Laptop thefts/ thievery. The principle adopted in this paper is basica l ly a theft of a laptop/stolen/lost is to retrieve a stolen Laptop. The software is embedded into laptop and on the desktop pc and in case of the theft the information will be displayed on home desktop the moment laptop put to use. When stolen compu ter connects eventually to the Internet, it will report to a secret monitoring website and the suspect will be trace and caught. To reduce the loss of laptops in any organization , the laptops are connected to the main server where in a laptop is tagged wi th a card similar to an access control “Proximity card”
