I am looking for a self destruct program for my computers hard drive(s). In case of my demise or if my laptop or desktop is stolen I want the hard drive to wipe out , re-format, short out, burn out or whatever if I do not personally input a cancellation code when prompted to do so either after a specified time or at boot-up. I just want to make sure that my personal information such as tax files, banking information and such do not fall into the wrong hands. The best case would be that I, and I only could resurrect the PC afterwards if I was to get it back if it was in fact stolen or, that it would be otherwise useless to whoever pried it from my cold dead hands. you know like the erase data option in iphone when activates after 10 failed passcode attempts. im looking something like that on windows login. Thanks to all who can help

Hi, it's odd you've copied the text of a 6 year old topic from another site: http://www.instructa...program-for-th/

 

Would you like to try again in your own words?

just encrypt your hard drive, unlike on the tv any destruction programs take time and can easily be bypassed by simply powering off the pc and then removing the hard drive and accessing it from a 2nd pc. an encrypted drive can not be accessed even on a 2nd pc.
