If you have a laptop that has remote admin/update software like Altiris on it, you'll probably screw up the PC if you start messing with partitions, folders, settings, etc. Would recommend against that. My latest work laptop (c/o the Fortune 25 company I work for) has the disk encryption, but no USB block or oppressive admin rights, and no huge caveats except to not install unlicensed software on it.

As for general use, are you traveling a lot? Employees that travel tend to have a bit more leeway with the use of their PC, browsing should be no big deal, but I would still recommend not loading up games or media on it. Get a smartphone or 2nd PC for that. And have some common sense; no porn browsing, period.

OT: sounds like there are a lot of 'bosses' on this thread ;0

when badly coded MTA software would get a reply-to-all with embedded email groups in it, misprocess the groups, and go into a exponentially-growing loop that brings down the server (happened in an office where I worked, Groupwise was the app). That'd show those reply-all types.

At my current job tho, people hate being left out of the loop, so reply-alls are the norm, rather than the exception. "Think before typing" hasn't been repealed, people just act like it has.
