Hummmm, very interesting Roby, and thanks for your help. I'm probably not supposed to have administrative access. My machine was delivered new a few years ago with windows 2000. Maybe it was supposed to be set up when it arrived.

The problem I'm having is with internet explorer. Whenever I click on a link such as window washer in post #5, or spell check at the bottom, it just brings up a blank screen on top of the screen I was viewing. The IE toolbar is there, and the address space is blank and the page underneath it is also blank. When this happens, sometimes it shows the web address at the botttom right above the start button, and sometimes it says error there. This even happens when I'm on our corprate E-web.

Event logs are easily deleted, but dont contain that much that can hurt you, unless you have a local printer and are printing out smut web pages (the url will be in there). You can blow your computer up with dynamite, and there is still plenty of evidence where youve been internet-wise. its all logged at your firewall. Nothing you can do to get rid of that. Most companies wont check those logs unless they suspect you've been up to no good.......

for you guys that it locks up on when you click on a link did you download and install any pop up blocker software? that would cause the issue you are describing.

Mine doesn't lock up. I just have to hit the X button on the blank screen to go back to the screen I was viewing.

Stay late and pull the hard drive out. Bring it home and bake it in the oven at 450 for an hour or so. Reinstall it then call tech support.
