if ur talking abt the Internet server then the answer is NO. You can clean out ur computer but cannot clean out the other server. For ur own Internet Usage cleaning u can try the tools here. They are all good.

so i would have been logged on the my server server??  between me And my ISP?? and there is no way of cleaning it out??
You cannot clean PC's you do not have access too.
Simple as that.

If you want to know what's being logged on the 2000server... ask the admin.

As for the ISP they can only use/give out info in case you break the userpolicy

It looks to me JGoodenough has a regular computer linked to a small network, which also has a W2k server linked to it. On this network there would be a router (like netgear, linksys, dlink,etc.) that shares the connection.
If this is the actual setup, I could say that nothing is logged on the Windows 2000 server, neither could it be done on the router.
Naturally, some stuff is logged on the ISP's servers, but this information can only be retrieved with a warrant in most countries. So if nothing highly illegal is done with this internet connection, the logs won't be used.
>  and there is no way of cleaning it out??
no, except you have access to the server itself
If the system is as you described, then
   - Nothing should be logged on the W2K server of your activities.  It's between your machine and the Internet.
   - The router MAY have logs of your activities.  Many types (Netgear for example) have the ability to log browsing habits, etc.
   - Your ISP may or may not have logs that will show someone from your offices IP (and possibly information that will narrow it down to your specific machine) have done x, y, or z on the Internet.  It certainly isn't easy to produce the information, and unless you are a terrorist or being sued by the RIAA for DMC violations, I wouldn't be too concerned about them.
