Finding criminals through computers have happen currently, since some of the criminals would likely have a social network like Myspace, Facebook, tagged, or others sites, since these websites are public you’re able to find the location where they are at.

Some of the programs that are used by any individual is the clock, language, and region link which allows to change the clock time on your laptop, or you can change the language, and you can change the location where the computer is located. Most people use it for charts, graphs, and calendar that can be projected in many different events like to show the population of genders, races, and ages.
