    do they randomly inspect the softwares installed inside laptops if they're genuine or pirated?

    di ba some airports do not allow the entry of fake clothes?

    Never did encounter these checks (Asia and US travels). Nearest thing was they asked me to boot-up the laptop.

    Ewan ko sa Europe.

    In my experience, airports in SEA dont scrutinize as far as verifying if all the programs in your laptop are original. But during heightened security, you can be randomly asked to open and turn on your laptop to demonstrate its actually functioning.

    on my way to sydney four months ago, they asked me to boot the laptop. hanggang dun lang.

    they did not bother running the control panel to check the installed programs or check the c:\program files directory.

    never did experience such checking in my asian trip. Just came from Indonesia three weeks ago.

    Ako din wala pang experience kahit sa U.S. pinapalabas lang yung laptop (lalagay sa tray) at bubuksan lang yung lid. Hindi na papa-on ang laptop.

    Unless you're a suspected pedophile (two Filipino seafarers were caught with ****o... ), I don't think they'll search.

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

    I have been to a lot of places but they don't usually do that. In the ME (particularly inbound to Saudi Arabia), they sometimes do random checks on laptops. They are not after the softwres installed but would check kung may ****o. Ditto with external hard drives, they are really very strict on these. They would require you to leave the hard drive (check the contents/files), and will let you retrieve it after 3 days.
