I understand that Garry Glitter was reported by PCW after taking his computer in for repair.

 

Thats correct. By a strange twist of fate I was working at the very store at the time. I also know for a fact that as a previous poster may have mused that as a defence it could have been put there by staff. I knew they guy who found it really well and heard his story of finding it first hand as well as the decisions made in reporting it to the police.

 

The decision to report him of course was vindicated by his conviction.

Couple of points here:

 

1. The OP is not suggesting that porn was downloaded in PC World, rather that files were viewed from a removeable drive that was attached to his PC whilst it was in the store. There is no direct evidence that child porn was viewed, only a suggestive title in the media player history.

 

2. If the OP's PC was used to download porn whilst in PC World or at an employees home it is unlikely the OP's own ISP account was used unless he had a dial-up account and a dialup modem installed and configured with his details.

 

Not that I'm saying what allegedly happened was right, but the story is becoming a little distorted.

Of course, yes, my comment with regard to my experience was more concerning another posters comment about the defence used in that particular case rather than a general comment or advice to the OP.

 

I would be personally disgusted if my PC was used in that way. If it could be proven that these files came from an external drive whilst still with an employee I am very surprised that no further action was taken.

 

As to a way forward, I am not sure. Although there may not be, it does seem that there may be more to what has happened here. I did note that the receipt shows that the same motherboard had already been swapped over once. Of course there may be a very valid reason for this, or the customer service guy was putting 2 and 2 together and making 6 and thinking there was something strange going on.

 

They should not have added that to the receipt though... that just makes them look silly. However, it must be pointed out that a motherboard is a very difficult thing to diagnose a fault in, and being the second faulty motherboard the OP has had it would seem the best thing to do would be to see the PC to see if another component is causing the fault.

As a point of note - off topic I know, but the IP address does not give a physical location, as it is assigned dynamically by the ISP(ie it changes each logon). However, ISPs will have a specific range of IP addresses that they assign, and so an IP CAN directly give the ISP, although it CANNOT directly give a physical location. But, chances are, that the ISP is tracking which user has which IP at which time, and so the customer can be traced in this way.

Nothing unusual with 2 or 3 Motherboards being faulty, we have had some supplies that we have found 6 out of 12 Motherboards to be faulty, needless to say never bought any more of that brand.. And PC World will buy in bulk.
