Here's a quick riddle: When it snooping on someone's computer not technically snooping? When you're performing computer forensics.

If you aren't sure what that is, just think of what the geeky character from CSI, NCIS or any other crime show does. They go on a victim or suspects computer and immediately have tons of information that will help solve the case.

Of course, as I've said before, Hollywood's idea of computer science is a little different than reality. So real forensic experts usually don't have it quite as easy as the ones on TV.

Still, you'd be surprised what you can learn from someone's computer with the right tools. You might be even more surprised to learn that many forensic-type tools are available for free.
