just recovered an unpaid for laptop from an EX family member.
paedophile.
Internet explorer history is clear, temp files are clear, and there are no jpg's on the hard drive.

Is there any way i can search for deleted files - i have a feeling there will be something there..

It is running xp home

Sick!

There's a few file recovery programs out there. No names are springing to mind though...

Just searching on google provided a few results. PC Inspector File Recovery is a free one that came up at the top of the list. Think it could be one I used in the past.

That sounds like good advice by getting them back you could be breaking the law yourself m8
I agree, also seeing those type of images is gonna turn your stomach I should think. Don't put yourself through it mate, makes me cringe just writing this.
