Hey everyone, OP here :) Thanks for the funny comments, it IS a weird situation, you have no idea what it's like to try to convince the HR lady that "porn site were appearing on my desktop and I have no idea who is doing it or how it's being done" :P Let me clear a few things up (since the debates were polarized around change your password / install nanny cam / take laptop home): 1- Our login passwords are company issued and the IT change them every 6 months.

Or they pissed off tech support. That'd be more possible then a janitor, especially if they're responsible, locking their computer and using proper passwords.

I've heard about this before though. It's a real phenomenon. It's called something like... the "porn fairy" How could anyone make something up like that? They have the ability to effortless bypass all the passwords on someone's computer and then they pull up all sites that they desire. Constantly screwing people over, those pesky fairies.

It may just be me, but have you thought about changing your password? Also, @70 in a decent organization tech support shouldn't have your password. Yes, they can reset it, but you would soon know about that when you can't get on the next day.

You told everyone it was s Southpark reference. And then appeared shocked when someone realized it was a Southpark reference. I take that as an insult to everyone's intelligence, like a slap in the face with a white glove. Duel accepted. Pistols at dawn.

Maybe the HR department are the ones in charge of changing the passwords, so she can't change them with out them. Which might be why it's significant that they don't believe her.

Then their IT department sucks. Laptops are often more expensive than a desktop of the same capacity, and have less capacity for upgrade or parts exchange. If the graphics card on a desktop dies you can replace it with many, many different graphics cards. If the graphics on a laptop die that's pretty much the laptop dead right there. Laptops are extremely specialized for mobility and so using them when they explicitly AREN'T mobile is a waste of money.

Why would a company give its employees laptops if they don't want the employees taking their laptops home? If that were the case, I'd think the company would give OP a desktop computer.

Usually situations like that are the result of the company getting some sort of bulk deal where it was cheaper overall to get laptops than desktops of the same specifications.
