i need to check a employees laptop for inapropriate material. But io dont have his logon password. Can i do this from the administrative account. I know i can do wildcard searches and such but what i really need is web history. and times of web page access any ideas?

Easiest thing is to search for the cookies.... most people dont think to delete them
do a search for *cookie* and it should find all of them.. then check the corresponding names and use the date/time stamp to see who had them the day of the stamp.

what about something like a desktop search using msn or google?
if you did a search for pron, wouldnt it find it?

ive never used it, so please disregard this msg if i am absolutely wrong.

Something like this would be listed... in the cookie double-click to open if you dont know the name of the site... or its ambiuous.. then go back to the search and look at the date/time the cookie was created...

If you dont know use the IP as you can see I made the IP visible in the cookie you can type in the IP in your web browser and go directly to the site in question sometimes... I say that because I tried it from this cookie and it did not work, even though i know where I went for this cookie which is why I used it..

Also, you can do an NSLookup on the site... so do a ping or nslookup and it will give you the corresponding IP for the site..

To do that do a run under the prompt type cmd (press enter)

then type:

nslookup osnn.net (or website in question)

Server: gd-main01.gd-centcom.com
Address: Sorry my IP is restricted....
Name: osnn.net
Address: 70.84.96.186

See its that easy...

Hehe
I can find anywhere you been even if you delete the website from the PC, we keep a cached copy of cookies going to PCs for this very reason... it wouldnt be good for a government employee walked by and I was looking at Bigtitties.com
LOL
:D

Tends to be in

C:\Documents & Settings\<username>\Local Settings\History

You could also check the cookies. (either on the machine or server, if the profile is roaming)

The local settings folder does not get uploaded to the server with a romain profile by default.

appreciate everyone response mlakrid already repped you but thanks again. :)

to clarify the search was warranted by something else we don’t randomly check computers. But legally i guess companies can. Anything on a business computer is usually considered business property. just food for thought.

What a lot of people overlook is the index.dat files as they will contain URL's as well as other info and you can not delete the index.dat files while in Windows.

Well KINDA... you cant erase index.dat files using the OS... there are plenty of commercial utilities to do so...

Example: Tracks Eraser and Tracks Eraser PRO which can be found at:
