Guys,

Is there anyway to view temp internet files easily. I am trying to find out
who is access a certain site across a network. I know someone is doing it
and I want to pin it down to times and computer name. Thanks,

Brad

If you are having problems with employees, create a security policy to
restrict them to doing what you want:

Go to Control Panel, Click Administrative Tools, Cilck Local Security
Policy, and from there, you can restrict users from doing many things.

Have Fun!

P.S. If that doesn't solve the problem, you might check the Windows XP
Security Administration Newsgroup for more info - thats where people
knowledged about that sort of thing will be.

Hope this helps!

(Win 2000) You can browse the folder in Windows Explorer. Its under
D:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files.

My experience of reading this group is that the majority of posters (at
least those that don't give specific details) have missed the "easy" answer.
In this case you may have thought the only way to view the temp files was
via Internet Exporer - Options - etc.

Perhaps your original post should have made it clearer what you have already
tried and what you actually need to do. Temporary Internet Files are stored
on each machine so you would need to check each machine to see what the user
has been up to.

I assume you are hoping there is an amazing tool that will automatically do
this for you? Or maybe you want someone to magically know what firewall /
proxy software you are running and to tell you whether or not it can log the
information you need. Possibly the phrase "temp internet files" means
something different to you than to other people reading your post?

Can I respectfully suggest (without direct personal insults) that if you
post what looks like a stupid question then you will get a stupid answer.

The answer is no. Though you can access the files easily enough through a command prompt.

Given guys it is just that this newsgroup or the MS newsgroups used to be
awesome. I mean people really worked for each other. Now if the post isn't
answered soon then it is discounted. Thanks for the help.
