Tracking PC usage by individuals

Is there a way to track a user's non-internet activity without installing any additional software?

Have a small staff problem and don't want the expense of buying expensive tracking software.

Tried using Temp / Recent / Profiles folders on myself to check but not reliable enough.

Any thoughts ?

A warning and a reminder of the consequences can do wonders in keeping staff under control.

You have to be careful about peering into computers, even if you do own them. There are all sorts of privacy, human rights this, that and the other regulations that can be invoked if you go about it wrongly.

Xevious - apologies - it's not the cost of purchasing software - it's the massively long winded process my company has in extracting this "officially" from the mainframes.

-Pops- Our organisation does have an E/mail usage and Computer Usage policies...and they are enforced - I just wanted to confirm my concerns before starting a formal process which would provide evidence to clear or cruicify.

I think a general reminder wouldn't go amiss though.

click here for a selection of free PC activity monitoring software. Do check the license though, they may become shareware for commercial use.
