Bugger, Sorry to hear, Low Life is abit higher than what i'd call the pricks.But this is when your backups prove their worth

Is there anything on it like facebook, msn or email that signs in automatically?

luckly its passworded so they will have a bit of trouble getting in, but can easily be reformatted doing the alt F10 on start up, my external hard drive that I used to back up stuff was in the case , stupid i know, but it was the first time i took with me so i could change my music on my walkman..25500 mp3s gone grrrr

rofl passwords wont stop em for more than 2 minutes..........

as for the machine..........well claim insurance and buy an Asus not an Acer

has a bios and admin password too

bios password might stump them for a while, not sure about emachine but on some laptops it's all but impossible to get past.
