I found it. you misinterpreted it:
First enacted into U.S. law in 1789, misprision of a felony in the federal system is a felony punishable by a fine and up to three years in prison. The common-law rule criminalized simply knowing about a felony and not notifying the authorities. But contemporary federal law also requires that the defendant take some affirmative act to conceal the felony. The crime has four elements:
a completed felony
the defendant knowing about the felony’s commission
the defendant failing to notify a proper law enforcement authority, and
the defendant taking some affirmative step to conceal the felony.
(18 U.S.C. §4.)
Typical acts of concealment include making false statements, hiding evidence, and harboring the felon. Whether someone’s actions amount to concealment is for the jury to decide.
Suppose Marty knows his neighbor, Biff, is growing marijuana. Marty wouldn’t be guilty of federal misprision simply for remaining silent. But if he lies to the police about Biff’s growing, he’s committed the crime.

I CONFESS... I did download some PORNO.. but.. I offload it to CD, as I do any sensitive stuff (finiances.. etc) so it's not on the HDD.
Computers are disposable now. I took an infected laptop to Geek Squad once...it was going to cost over $200 to fix. Bought a new one for $280.
