I’m not very adept with computers, so I don’t even know if I’m using the right term, so here’s the situation. The computer we use at work for what is basically word processing uses Windows XP Professional. It is not connected to the internet or any network in anyway…it is just a PC hooked up to a production machine. We have just our production program on it, and basic Windows stuff like WordPad, and, unfortunately, a few games, like Spider Solitaire, which we are NOT supposed to play. But occasionally, during long, slow days when there are no customers for hours at a time, we sometimes play Spider. Might also start it up for a quick game in the morning, get busy with customers and forget to close it out until we shut down the computer at night.
So now we have found out that the district manager can check the usage history on the machine and find out if we’ve accessed Spider. Since he has to physically be in the store to do this, we’d like to delete this history if it is possible to do easily, so that we don’t have to deal with the lecture, reprimand, and possible termination that can result from occasional Spider usage. But I have no clue how to start. I plan on totally deleting the game itself from the computer anyhow, just so I and others are not tempted in the future. But I don’t want that history sitting there like a ticking time bomb. We are smart enough to search for the program every time we want to play it, but some stores were foolish enough to actually put a short-cut on their desktop for it…so silly of them.
So can someone walk me through the steps, in language a little old lady could understand?
