How to stop Admins from sniffing ?

Hey List

I work in a small organisation and the system and network administrators here are constantly monitoring all data in the 
network. I have seen them running Etherreal on their systems and from their talks i am sure that they know who is doing 
what. I m using windows XP and i have a personal firewall installed which pop's up every few minutes saying that there 
is a port scan attack going on. And when i looked up that IP address it belongs to tbe system being used by the 
administrator. I have tried talking to my bosses about this but not happened ( maybe the admins convinced them that 
they are not doing anything like that or its happening by bosses permisson).  i know since they are in same network as 
me its easy for them to sniff all traffic and everything.

What i want to know from you ppl is that is there is anyway way to stop this ? is it possible for me to encrypt all 
traffic going out from my system ? 
I have never used a Anti-Sniffer but can they help ? any way out ?

Thanks in advance
