Report Abuse Desktop Client

September 4th, 2006 by Zack Whittaker

 

 

 Download links available here 

This page has been saved in the right hand pane. You can always access this page by selecting Report Abuse Desktop Client at the top right, underneath the Search bar.

The Report Abuse Desktop Client is an application written by myself and provided by MSBLOG enabling younger users of the Internet to report online abuse or suspicious activity of online predators. It’s a topic which no-one really wants to talk about because of the discomfort and the sickening of this sort of behaviour, but it’s being addressed in a number of different ways.

The Virtual Global Taskforce (VGT) is an online organisation set up and moderated by the world’s policing authorities from the USA, England, Australia and Interpol. It provides the ability for users who feel they are being targeted by online sexual predators to report information to make sure that the online community is safer. Already, Microsoft have incorporated the VGT as a tab in Windows Live Messenger, and they’ve shutdown the MSN Chatrooms but this isn’t enough for outside Microsoft and their products.

This tool sits in the system tray, and younger users between 5-18 can use this tool if they feel threatened or are aware of suspicious activity. Simply double-click the icon to bring up the VGT Report Abuse website.

Please digg this – I really want this tool to be available to everyone who wants it 🙂

    Hi,

    How do you uninstall this? I can’t find it anywhere in “Add/Remove Programs”…

    Thanks!

  13. Zack Whittaker Says:

    I know, I’m working on it. Close the application, delete the icon in the Startup menu and delete it from the Program Files folder – that’s it, simple as that. There’s no registry keys or anything – after that, it’ll be completely gone.

  14. Andre N Says:

    Oh, ok – I just wasn’t sure if the application used the registry or not. Thanks!
