	A man awaiting trial for alleged gun crimes is suing Microsoft
for 
	privacy violations after FBI agents seized his home computer
during a
	raid and found files containing sexually explicit videos of him
and his
	girlfriend and evidence that he frequented pornographic Web
sites.
	
	Michael Alan Crooker, currently in jail in Connecticut, says
security
	features advertised by Microsoft and its business partners
should have
	kept federal agents from accessing the files on his PC. In court
papers 
	filed this week in Massachusetts Superior Court, Crooker says he
	"suffered great embarrassment" as a result of Microsoft's
failure to
	keep the FBI's prying eyes off his computer.
	
	He is suing the software maker for $200,000 in compensatory and
punitive 
	damages.
