I don't know how the way a cell phone spy software work to steal data from their victims.

Anyone make me clear? Your idea will be highly appreciated.

I'm locking this thread. Stealing clearly falls in the category 'unlawful activities' that the forum rules (links at left) prohibit to discuss.

IF you're asking..

Your post is unclear. I suspect Kees understood you, better than I. It's why I'm going to lock the thread again after submitting my post.

IF on the outside chance, you're asking HOW spyware works to steal data and NOT asking for the tools (or software) to do so, maybe the below will help:

I found it with the help of Google. You may be able to find more, if you're asking "how spyware works".

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
