You can identify with its network card id (if exists).

Good Luck

You would need to get the MAC address of the Network card if it exists.
Each network card has a globally unique MAC address.

Take a look at this:-http://www.codeguru.com/network/ViewAdapterInfo.html

The code uses the GetAdaptersInfo API function, which is used to get information from the network adapter. This function enables retrieving the unique information to globally identify the computer.
