burty, you said 'because it has nothing to do with me! I am there to fix the issue not to look at naked pictures of the user or their ilegal Child porn collection.' Sorry, but it has indeed something to do with you. You are legally bound to inform the police of any child porn found on a computer, as not to do so means allowing the computer owner to continue with his illegal activities and puts more children in danger. I realise at 17 you maybe didn't know this, but your employer should have made this clear to you. Next time you find child porn on anyone's computer, report it either directly to the police or to your boss who can then get in contact with the police on your behalf. Everyone must fight against child abuse of any kind, wherever they come across it. If you ignore it, what does that say about you? I'm sure you don't wish children to suffer in this way, so please don't ignore material like this is future. About the school business - yes, a horrible thought for anyone that they may have been spied on in their own room at home, maybe in a state of undress. This isn't something to make light of, it's a very nasty and serious situation. The school may protest that they were doing nothing wrong, but they were and I'm not surprised legal action is being taken against them. This was a violation of privacy and was totally inexcusable.
