If you have 10 years worth of stuff on a Win 7 box maybe your company is using roaming profiles and you've just been upgraded over the years. In which case, you're too late. They already have a copy of your profile on their servers and probably a decent number of backups.

It's been said here already, but it is a company computer and they have rights to all information on it. It was probably in the IT policy that you signed when you started. But that policy should cover the IT department as well and prevent them from using your personal data maliciously. Has your IT staff given you reason to fear them?

But why would you want to do that? That's not usually how any software is distributed for Linux. Honestly, I can't think of the last time I had to mount an ISO for anything other than grabbing some .exe or .msi file to install on a windows instance somewhere. But that was quickly replaced with VMware's mount ISO option.

Kiss your keyboard goodbye!
