How do you know if your boss is spying on your computer?

As some of you may know, i work at a "Hot-Rod" shop. I have the typical auto shop TV boss; short fuse, screams, yells and is overly confident, likes destroying stuff and so forth.

Anywho...when i started working here, (Maybe 3-4 years ago) he told me that we would do random drug screenings and that all of the computers were monitored (he said he had software such as Investigator and the like) and that he would be on the lookout.

Since then, i have yet to take a drug test and have become the backbone of this company. I run these computers as well, and i have yet to see any trace of spyware, nor would he know how to install it.

But, im still curious. If there is spyware, how could i find it? Help a Planet member remain a planet member.

Some of the really crappy ones will show up as a process in the task manager, but you have to know what you're looking for. The good ones won't, though. Even if he doesn't have monitoring software directly on the PC it doesn't stop him from seeing what you're doing on the Internet.

If he was spying on you I'd say you just flushed him out.

I've looked under installed programs and didn't see anything. I've looked at the process and haven't seen anything abnormal.....but if you knew my boss, you wouldn't put it past him. the most paranoid man i've ever met in my life. but, i've been doing this for 3 years now....so...

Nah, I was just questioning the validity of your claim that you are the backbone of the company. A lot of people who become entrenched in their positions seem to think that way eventually. Hell, we're all probably guilty of it. But no one is irreplaceable. No one. Unless you work for free and give great blowjobs.

Depending on what the network infrastructure is, he could track where you are going on the interwebs, and for how long. He could see anything you are downloading also. There are a few ways, and none of them have to be installed on the local machine.

But he would have to have a serious setup for that, which to me doesn't sound like the case.

Sorry, let me re-phrase that. By running, i mean "maintain". I install all of the programs, maintain them, service them etc. Basic stuff that a lot of the car guys around here don't know how to do.

So when you say "Server Logs" it goes right over my head.

I know a lot of stuff about the company that not even he knows. Yeah, i could get fired, but with the relationship we have, and as much as he depends on me for everything, i doubt it. It would take a shit load of training to replace me, and he hates training people...

Well, we have about 5 machines in the network. I know all of the work email accounts get CC'd to his email...But i don't think we have anything radical.

If he is any sort of computer literate then you wouldn't know if he had software/hardware spying on you.

He would have to have a Server acting as a proxy server, or some sort of firewall basically. If you arent running any of that, chances are pretty nil. Unless the account that you use is not the admin account, there could be some ways to do it using an admin account on the local machine with some very specific software, but the account the rest of the shop uses would have to be just a user account basically.

And even then, you would probably see the software in the add/remove programs.

you could look around on the machines but he might get wise to it (if he is logging things)....

the fact he hasn't thrown a random drug test (any suspects?).... makes me wonder.

May monitor internet history from the machines/browser? (are you looking at PR0n websites?)....

sounds like the (blind cc) keeps you honest in not sending pr0n jpg files etc around.
