"If it isn't broken, don't fix it." In otherwords... don't try to figure out something you don't want to know. As long as you bought it from a legitimate site, you should be covered from the feds. reclaiming it, at least without a refund. But you're right about being careful. I could make a program to steal all sorts of information, even from a legitimate website like that and I'm only 18. So anyone who knows what they're doing could steal any information you store or send on the computer. The select few ruin it for us all!
