Are you the company System Administrator? If you are you then are in over your head, if your not ask the admin what steps need to be taken. Just my 2 :thumbsup:

Try iProtectYou .You can block access, limit access by time, or allow only certian sites. I run a LAN at the house for my kids and have extra computers setup for thier friends. 10 computers right now. By the way if your LAN is routed to the internet , the router should also be able to block the computer by filtering that computer's unquie local IP address while still giving them access to the LAN . If the LAN is not routed run down to Walmart and pickup the $39.99 Linksys router. Just plug it in between your internet connection (cable/DSL) and your LAN and run the software it is pretty straight forward. I perfer the software option . I restrict times and site not a total blockage. Also if you need to passively see where your employees are going try RealVNC . You see what they see without them knowing. By typing in thier local IP address. Make sure the viewer is NOT installed on thier computer or they can snoop on others.
Take BEAR's words to heart. If you are not the System Administrator LEAVE IT ALONE !!! Unless you are in the mood for a job change. If you get someone to set it up for you learn how to change the Admin passwords to limit who has access. And change them when ever the system is modified.

I AM NOT AN EXPERT. I am only passing on what works for me. Have fun . You can do this.
