Unhappy

Through my job I have a lap-top with internet access (I pay for internet and not connected to the work system). We just found out that everyone with laptops are due for an "inspection." I am a little worried about some of the sites I have visited, as they are not work related. They aren't bad sites (readorn) just fun things and frequent visits to DoItYourself. As I am a supervisor, any non-business surfing might be frowned upon.

I have gone into Windows Explorer and deleted all 'History' items as well as all "Temporary Internet' files.

Is there anything else I can and should do to remove any traces of non-work internet?

Any and all advice is greatly appreciated.

check out my post on internet history in the hints and tips section. have to search back more then 30 days. will clean up the system. Unless you do not have admin rights the program will clean up your system pretty good.

Question

Brian - I looked for your post but couldn't find. Where might the Hints and Tip section be? I looked on main page, checked forums and did a search but couldn't find.

I am really interested in your response, so please get back to me on where to find your info.

Thanks.

Another long term solution is to install another browser. If your corporate stuff is on IE use Netscape as your personal browser. Before you take it in for service just uninstall the secondary browser. (Warning it is almost impossible to fully uninstall IE.) If your company keeps both IE and Netscape on the laptop there are several other lesser known browsers out there and some hackerware.
