A computer runs on software, so how are you going to do that?

The only way to do it without software is to stand behind him/her and write down every move they take. :)

Please post back if you have any more problems or questions.
If this information is useful, please mark as helpful. Thanks

Well what I meant was, I have a user that I suspect of inappropriate surfing. He uses several different computers, probably something like 20 different machines. All are running XP and are on the same domain. I do not have any type of monitoring software or anything like bluecoat running and I was just curious if anyone knows of any way to see all the sites this guy goes to on every machine with his login without actually going to each machine and looking thru the history or temp internet files.

You can look in the temporary internet files under that users profile. Local Cookies sometimes reveal info too. This could be done with remote desktop, or mapping to the C$ share on these PC's. without leaving your seat.

Yes does make it a tad difficult, you could try netstat from the cmd prompt.
It is a tool for checking your network configuration and activity.

Just to add all activity on a computer with regards to emails and internet is recorded in what's called an index.dat file,

to see these you'll need a tool such as index.dat viewer
