Can I find out who installed FF on a PC? Employees are work keep installing it and I want to know who it is.
I'll check the regedit next time I find it installed. I can't install anything that isn't company approved.Are you in a domain enviroment?
EDIT: I can see the only way to do it natively in Windows is to check the registry:
Hopefully, you will find the FF exe file in the MRU list underneath the users documents and settings path. And tada, you nailed them.
If you dont find it there, I can do some investigation into a monitoring software which will do the trick.
Where's that? :ssee who owns the file in sharing and security.
Not sure where to lookwont it show up in the event log and which user was logged on when that happened?
Nothing except my employees are suppose to be working and not surfing the net AND they are not suppose to be installing any software!whats wrong with FF? :cry:

The PC is locked as much as possible (we have a desktop group that handles that, I can't do much more), the staff do need some access as we use a monitoring tool that runs off the net and needs to be able to have a popup. I'm pretty sure I know who installed FF the last time but I was so pissed it had been installed (right after it was re-imaged) that I simply uninstalled it without looking.
