  1. Dear all:
    My best friend just had his car broken in, and his laptop was stolen. Now that thief uses his laptop to go on internet, and my friend's AIM and MSN automatically logs on.

    My question is, is there a way to trace the connection from MSN or AIM based on IP address? Is it peer to peer? Anyone? Please help...

    thanks...

    It is peer to peer if you do file transfers, voice and video chats. Otherwise the IP is untraceable.
