    Hello, I don't know if this is the correct subforum to post this.

    I work repairing computers and every day I have access to several of them, these computers, laptops, etc. will have access to internet later once they are delivered back to the owners. My question is if any of you can come up with ideas of how to monetize them. I was thinking about putting an adfly link in the homepage of Chrome or something like that, although that would be a little annoying. Or maybe installing some software. I dont intend to damage their computers or their privacy, Im not interested in that kind of things, and FYI i already know how to install keyloggers or malicious software, but that is not my intention. I just want to know if you guys can come up with ideas of how to benefit from the computers to earn some money.

    that's not ethical, you're repairing someones computer you shouldn't mess with them. I think when watchdogs was released someone on the pirate bay uploaded a full version of the game with a hidden bitcoin miner, everyone that downloaded the game was mining bitcoins for that one dude.

    I used to spam chat rooms with mine. I could easily be in 1000 chat rooms with autoresponding bots at any moment.

    Those were the good old days.

    Charge more for your service?
    It's obvious you feel like you're not being paid enough or you wouldn't be looking for another way to make money out of them.
    They trust you with their personal computers, don't go fucking with them.

    This is illegal and can get you arrested and sued. You do not have any permission to install malware on that computer, you are supposed to be removing it, or fixing some other issue.

    I feel sorry for your clients, and another one goes on ignore.

    Thanks for the ideas everyone, and yes you have a valid point. Its not that Im not charging enough, is that sometimes I dont have enough work to sustain. But I was just curious, I dont think I would do this for real, I know its wrong. But thanks anyway.

    Isn't mining illegal, is it? You mean you place a mining botnet on the computers to mine some bitcoins, but I think it's not allowed.

    Mining on PC's you own OR have permission to do so is perfectly fine.
    Infecting the owners PC with a silent miner is illegal.
