Am curious as to how many post here from worksites, read not to long ago on CNN that employers are loading spy equipment into computers as work to see where employees go on pc's. Do any of you know whether your employer is "looking over your shoulder?"

most of the time it's the east coast talerban posting stuff around here from work. They post mostly neo-nazi stuff about how we should stop welfare fraud and put lazy people to work.

I never figgered out how a talerban yuppie could steal the time and use of equipment from his boss and then have a clear conscience to bellyache about how other folks are living..

We used to use a product call Surf Control that does exactly what you described. Unfortunately, I had to install it and notify the entire company we were going to block certain internet access and track everything they did on the Inet. Everyone was mighty upset over that. We had a problem with one employee and his obsession with porn. That fiasco turned into a company-wide Surf Control installation.

Fortunately, the company I work for changed their mind about monitoring people in the Inet. I was more than glad to remove that bit of software from our system. Hopefully your hubby's company will get over it too.

90% of the time I post from work. Then again, I am the director of technology services at work, so I would know if anyone was spying on me. I work at a liberal arts college and the faculty gets rather hostile if you encroach on anything that smacks of "academic freedom".

Here at work, I would be the one doing the looking as I am the Director of M.I.S. and no, we have much more to do than to spy on the average employee. Our policy is that is is OK to have some casual Internet time in lieu of a break, lunch etc. It is not necessary to spy to find out abusers. Abusers are found out rather quickly because their PC's performance suffers and they call for support. We have excellent strategies via hardware to prevent viruses, so I am not worried about that, but that pesky spyware is what is most elusive...

Better get back to work ;-)

Boss doesn't care-oops I am my own boss!. LOL I used to work in Venezuela and we had a lot of problems with the venezuelan engineers downloading porn. They put in spyware to monitor sites visited. For fun, I would log in with their user ID and go to KKK, NEO-Nazi and skinhead sites. Boy you should have heard the heads being scratch back at home office-what are these latinos up to?
