Looking for help

Yes you are 100% safe from your boss/wife/parents.

 

Unless they ask your Internet Service Provider to track what you've been doing :o

Simplicity is hard.

An Internet service provider (ISP, also called Internet access provider, or IAP) is a company that offers its customers access to the Internet. The ISP connects to its customers using a data transmission technology appropriate for delivering Internet Protocol datagrams, such as dial-up, DSL, cable modem, wireless or dedicated high-speed interconnects.

 

ISPs may provide Internet e-mail accounts to users which allow them to communicate with one another by sending and receiving electronic messages through their ISPs' servers. (As part of their e-mail service, ISPs usually offer the user an e-mail client software package, developed either internally or through an outside contract arrangement.) ISPs may provide other services such as remotely storing data files on behalf of their customers, as well as other services unique to each particular ISP.

 

They have huge databases for the thousands of people they provide service to.

Look you're getting paranoid for no reason. Just relax. Stay calm.

You are probably right. It just I kid you not I am a V.P. of this company and went to a site that would destroy my career. It was not that awful of a site just porn, but still very wigged out about it. Thanks VERY much.

Ricky, if you haven't been busted so far, you may be OK.

 

It's really impossible to say whether CCleaner would cover your tracks or not, or whether your company has systems in place to log employees activities.

 

If you don't have full admin rights, you may only be able to use certain features of CCleaner that the administrator has deemed useful or necessary. If you can run all of CCleaners cleaning routines, then you should be OK.

 

As I say, it isn't possible to give you a definitive answer. Maybe ishan is correct in his comments. Lets hope so, but the message here is simple. Keep your fingers crossed, and don't put yourself into this position in the future. It ain't worth it.

 

Good luck.

Dennis you are most definitly correct is I can avoid this screw up I am staying out of this situation in the future. I was on vacation acouple of weeks ago and they put in a new internet server with new emails. I do not know what you mean in full admin rights. I guess what ya'll are saying is they still, if wanted could trace my tracks?

My friend, you can check if you have Admin rights in the "User Accounts".

Given that you are pretty much new to all this, I would suggest you not to get too worked up.

 

Mr. Dennis is right.

I don't know what setup your employers have, or how big your company is, or how nosey or devious your IT maintenance guys are, and it's impossible to say who has admin rights.

 

This simply means that if you have full admin rights you can more or less do what you like in way of installing software, running maintenance programs, deleting stuff that shouldn't be there comes to mind.

 

But if you or your station have limited user rights, then you will be limited to what you can do.

 

That's about it Ricky, I can't really tell you any more. I've never worked in a commercial IT environment.

 

If you can run all CCleaners cleaning routines without restriction, then your tracks will probably be covered, but on a work PC you are definitely sailing near the wind.

What next? Probably nothing.

 

Just run Ccleaner, which you might have already done! And Voila! :)

 

But keep in Mind what MR. D just said!

Keep your fingers crossed I think.

 

I can't really tell you anything else without going down the road of making assumptions, and giving you wrong information wouldn't be of any help to you.

 

That's it Ricky, unless any of the other guys have more knowledge of Commercial Networks and may chip in with more advice, but very difficult without knowing anything about your Corporate setup.

 

A final good luck from me Ricky.
