Default HELP! Real Trouble

I have created a big problem for myself and I thought I would see if anyone on this forum might have answers, suggestions or know where I can go for help.

Like a Dumb SHI* I am I started working for a government agency and against policy I went out to various web sites. I need to erase any evidence of going to those sites.

I am on the leading edge of low technology. Some of my thoughts are below.

The agency has an intranet. If possible, I suspect the hard drive will have to have these specific URLs remove without corrupting the hard drive. Then I understand that ghosts remain on the monitor's screen. If that is correct, I will need to find a monitor that is not being used and swap them.

I will need to take any technical questions you have to someone who can provide the answers.

Thanks.

What does HDD stand for? I assume it is hard drive ????

My PC is on a sophisticated intranet system and that is a real concern.

Anything I do with the hard drive will have to be done by a computer tech and I will have to remove it without anyone's knowledge. But first I will need to figure out how to remove the hard drive.

My concern is that in the process a tech would cause problems with the hard drive, which would undue what I am trying to avoid.

basically you're screwed, you can remove the inet history but you'll never be able to find the registry entries because (at a guess) your pc will be locked down (permission wise) as to what the user can access and because

you haven't really got a hope in hell of understanding let alone removing the incriminating entries because if you believe

you have no idea of what is involved.

My advice, contact your superior/IT dept, fess up, be prepared to get a bollocking and/or lose your computer priviliges/job.

Companies have pc usage policy for a reason, ignore the policy and reap the results.

The only other option is to say nothing and hope your surfing isn't discovered.

Mate, you do not have a clue, it is obvious you have never been in a corporate situation.

He is in a corporate situation, I doubt his user logon would have sufficient permissions to install software, hell, he'd be lucky if he has permission to change his desktop wallpaper.

Unless you have a close friend in their support staff you're SOL. Anything you do can/will be tracked and in some cases remotely logged.
