This 'ComputerTrace status' is listed on the Security tab under User Password in PhoenixBIOS 2.6.1 on a Dell Inspiron 1501 notebook, and the options are Activate/Deactivate.

The problem is this - I just bought this laptop and the "ComputerTrace status" had a selectable "Deactivate" option and some other information underneath that I didnt get to read before i selected "Deactivate" by accident.

Now the option is changed to "Activate" but it cannot be changed back! And the other info is gone and I cant find out anything about what the heck ComputerTrace does and whether it is active or inactive on my laptop.

I googled it but there is very little, if any, information about this that I can find.
