I'm one of the few people at work with internet access because I actually need it for what I do. lol Everyone else must feel deprived because they flock to my desk when I'm not around. I really wouldn't mind, but they keep downloading complete GARBAGE. I've tried to talk to them about ADWARE and how horrible it is, but they honestly don't understand. It's so frustrating because I spent a long time cleaning up that computer. Then they come along and trash it within a few minutes. :huh: When I get to work in the morning I spend a good hour or so trying to clean it up before I can even start anything. It's just getting ridiculous. :hmmm: Is there a way to keep them from downloading stuff? What should I do? I swear, they're worse than children. lol

If you have Windows XP, set up a Guest account for them to use and don't give it downloading privilege. Password protect your own account.
