Although the activity is illegal for possessing child porn, why would a repair shop need to go through your pictures/documents?

Are all the repair shops going through peoples personal documents and pictures? I thought they where repairing the systems, not looking through your personal data.

Watch out for identity theft next from these repair shops. What else would they "need" to go through your documents and pictures for?

Actually you don't know what this person was in when he seen the illegal activity. He actually might not have been in any files or documents to have seen that. There are much more layers in a computer than just a file.
I think this person that was working on this computer was right on to call the police.
You always have so many comments. Most I don't agree with. And, this one is no exception.

Being in the IT field for more than 12 years now, yes the tech would have to have been viewing documents and pictures to see this. Granted, I am glad the the child porn was discovered and correct action was taken.

The point I was making was that the repair place was looking through the customers files. I know not all computer repair shops are not like that, in that they go through your personal belongings.

It is like having your things moved by a moving company, only to find out they went through all of your personal information. Why would they need this information, what purpose does it serve them to have it.

Being in the IT field for more than 12 years, I do know a bit about computers.

The point I was making is what right did this computer company have looking at someones personal data? If you hired a moving company to move your office or home, would you want them going through your personal papers, records, or pictures?

Granted, the activity found was illegal, and the tech did right by informing law enforcement, but why was the tech going through looking at personal data anyway? I would think that a violation of privacy.

I get so tired of reading all your drawn out theries on everything. You keep on and on about things. Like you are tying to get everyone else to change their views and go with what you are saying.
Give an opinion, great, but others have one also.
And, being in the tech field then you must know that he/she didn't have to open files to have that crap seen.
I am amature at best in computers and know that.
The sad fact is you can go on a website and have mild porn show up on the sides of a lot of pages. It is sick. You try to see something decent and boom a half naked woman with her breast or butt showing on the screen with captions. I get so tired of it. And it is on other sites than porn ones.
The real funny thing is. You NEVER see men like taht pop up. Only females. Ever wonder about that.
This person was sick to have that junk and I applaude this computer repair person for calling the law.
