I wouldn't say I've found anything really salacious, like porn or anything, but I do know the download p2p file sharing community is alive and well.

Not really. Although I'm certainly guilty of looking around

Actually just last night a friend shared with me some pics he had found of a user whose computer he was repairing. She was ok, mid-30s. OK face, good body. Nothing to write home about. Pictures were certainly from soft R to XXX.

All. The. Time.

I was a field engineer (think Geek Squad) for a local PC maker back in the mid 90's and saw all kinds of stuff on home and office PCs. Then I became network engineer at the college here, and I see everything. Students are some horny bastards, lemme tellya.

If I "accidently" run across anything, I usually don't worry about it regardless of the content and If I see something, I just keep it to myself. After all, my goal is to repair the computer. I never say, 'Hey, Joe Bob, those are some nice pics and video's. Would you mind burning them to CD for me? I thought they were kidding when they said there was "Adult entertainment' on the Internet".

I just started working at Microsoft, and I was shocked at what I found.

On the PC I was issued, there were all these word documents and emails from the old manager of this department to and from folks at Google, where I think he works now. And the guy just put them in the Recycle Bin, never emptied it.

What a moran!

Similar situation with me but I was repairing a friend's computer. He had lots of pictures of his then current girlfriend. Nothing worth sending out other friends but I nice job perk nonetheless.

Off topic:

Your IT department doesn't reimage the computers before assigning them to other employees? That doesn't seem like a good idea...
