Companies can monitor anything and everything you do on company
computers. Every company I have worked for has an acceptbale us policy
that all use of company equipment will be for business purposes only.
Using a company PC to send and receive email is stupid. Let alone facebook
or anything else of the sort.
Of course companies don't want you browsing unless it's work related
and there is a LOT of browing that IS work related. The best troubleshooting
you can do it by pasting an error message into google to see what it
A lot of companies block access to sites they don't want you to see,
and I run into a lot of issues with this due to problem solutions
for many technical issues posted on personal blogs that are blocked.
