Stubbdog. You are very welcome.

As you stated in an earlier post, it might be time to set more restrictions on this user. I firmly believe that a work computer should not be used for any personal use at all. Especially downloading music, etc. and checking email.

I should have mentioned this sooner, the Security Check program that I had asked you to download and install in this would not have updated the sensitive software that is installed on the computer. The program just audits the system looking for outdated programs. I was more concerned about Adobe and Java since they have been vulnerable programs for years that is targeted by malware. Please keep those up to date as best as possible.

If you ever have the need for our guidance, we would be more than happy to help.

Happy and safe computing!

Donna :)
