comment Hidden Periodic Screenshots on a corporate workstation?
We're pretty lenient on what users can install on their computers. As long as its during lunch hours or non-business hours, we're okay with users playing games. These are local games -- so they don't connect to any servers. He's also abusing computer usage through other local means such that a proxy wouldn't be able to detect them.

Thanks, I will check it out. There is a computer usage policy in place.

So after the meeting, the logs didn't show any further adult websites. But then soon after, we've been hearing reports that he's been using his computer that doesn't connect to the web. Such as playing games and looking at pictures (possibly stored on his USB hard drive). It's harder to detect abuse of this nature. He can always argue that its his word against anyone else's. What we really need is "evidence". We won't be doing this for the entire firm. But he is violating company policy regarding computer usage.

No, I appreciate your comments. The employee is someone relatively high up in the company. He's not someone that the company can easily let go. This user has been warned in the past about his computer behavior. He was browsing inappropriate adult-oriented websites. And he was spending alot of time viewing websites. Some of his colleagues brought it to management's attention. Management told us in IT Department to start gathering "evidence". So we began logging his web access. When we had a meeting with the user, he mentioned that the adult material was the results of popups.
