I have an IBM ThinkPad A31p that is my work laptop. The company is upgrading me to another laptop and I need to return this one.

Here's my dilemna: "technically" we're not supposed to visit the web, or download anything onto our computers. I've had this thing for over 5 years, and have been on the web numerous times and downloaded a number of things.

Hey- I'm a fantasy football and Penn State Nittany Lion junkie and needed my fixes, ok?

I've downloaded some music sharing software, Yahoo Messenger, and things like that. Nothing real complicated or illegal.
Can anyone tell me how to erase all of that stuff with no trace?

I went to add/delete programs and deleted Yahoo! messenger, but on startup I get a message saying a certain Yahoo file can't be found. I get the same thing for another program ( I think it is Rhapsody Music)

Also- will there be footprints of the web activity on the hard drive? If they see I've been hitting the web, I'll get a wrist slap but would prefer to remain unscathed. We have new leadership in the company and I want to remain a golden boy as long as I can:) If there is a way to erase web activity, I'd appreciate it.

Any help would be really appreciated.
