Recent File List - Corruption or Invasion?
Posted on 2006-12-01
One of my users opened Word today to find that all of her most recent documents under the File menu were documents she hadn't touched in ages, and worse, they were of a personal nature.
She was logged on as herself, and left the computer deserted for a time, but after 10 minutes the screen saver kicks in, and is password protected. It's possible one of her students snuck in, but that's unlikely - the timing would have to be perfect. The only other explanation I can think of it this: I needed to use the computer, so I had to log her off with the administrator password, ending her session ("This will log off the current user"). Does anyone know if this potentially causes corruptions in the recent documents list?
The only other alternative I can think of is that one of the students DID manage to sneak in, which is distressing. I'm hoping for a different answer that makes sense, because sadly I believe she thinks I did this, and I couldn't offer her any other legitimate solutions :-(.
