Web crarler to to find and remove identifying information form the internet/search engines

Hi,

Please share with me any software tool or resource that will allow me to query the internet and remove any negative information or identifying information about an individual.  For example, on TV and the government (NSA/CIA) can run a script or software tool to find pictures of someone and either replace the information or delete the inform form any web resource even if it is cached.  

I reviewed the following sites but no luck: 1) http://removeyourname.com/packages/business.html; 2) http://integritydefender.com/business.php


Any information will be helpful.

This is not something you can do easily or via a script.  

Let's say a newspaper printed that you were arrested for drunk driving.   The only way that is coming down is if you can prove they should have used Sesemj and not Cesemj.  

What you are pointing to will probably just try and post more fake positive information to push out the negative.  But it does not go away.  It just get's bumped from page 1 to page 3 and even that depends on how you search.

You might be able to find information about yourself but no script will give you access to other people's server to change or remove the information there.  If you found an image you wanted removed on Google Images, you would have to make a request to Google to remove it.  But since most images found thru Google are on other people's web sites, you would have to contact the actual web site.  Without some legal means like a court order, they don't have to do what you want.
