Here at my new place, it's a much bigger company - and with that comes much bigger bureaucracy. We use Internet Explorer because a few of our applications require it. Though I always recommend people to use the Firefox with AdBlock+ I installed for everything else...but they don't know what that is. They think it is a different internet or something...it just makes their brains shut down. So they sit there until 11am and browse Youtube, Facebook and Myspace clicking away at links and infecting their machines.
I'm plan on proposing a Squid/Dans solution, because nary a day goes by without some idiot bringing me their infected machine to clean, thereby decreasing my efficiency to do other things and keep our network in shape.
What other solutions have any of you used, given the environment of IE and each user being a local admin? (don't even get me started on that...that shouldn't be, there's no good reason for it).
So I'm wracking my brain here on what can be done with this user type setup.
Ideas...any, all, brainstorm...please. I'm about to lose my mind, as I have three on my lab bench out back to go fix for the rest of the AM. And it's only Tuesday.
Forgot to mention, our "virus protection" is currently Trends (LOL). I plan on advising Avast because the only thing Trends can stop is my productivity.
